What is the injustice we are solving?
Due to low health standards in children in West Virginia, many elementary school aged children spend too much time inactive and attached to screens and not being taught about healthy and active lifestyles. Get Up and Get Moving provides access for these children to engage in active and social play in a free after school program. College student volunteers work to plan and execute these events to provide a fun way to promote healthy lifestyles among children. We plan games that engage the children socially, intellectually, and encourage them to have fun and be themselves. College students help teach games that children can continue playing on their own, and play with the children in games like basketball, kickball, duck-duck-goose, musical chairs, and tag. Because of the large range of activities, children of all capabilities and interests can participate in these after school programs.
