RSVP has partnered with The Summit County Health District to implement a national evidence based childhood obesity prevention program called CATCH Kids Club (Coordinated Approach to Childhood Health). RSVP Volunteers along with teen volunteers team up to provide this fun and innovative program to various youth groups in the community.


What is CATCH Kids?

A program designed to engage elementary school aged children in practicing healthy eating and physical activity. Weekly sessions incorporate fun, educational games and activities to learn about good nutrition, goal setting, hands-on snack preparation, and taste testing.

RSVP volunteers have an opportunity to participate in facilitating this fun program for youth ages 5-12.


How do trained volunteers help?

  • Lead lessons on the importance of physical activity
  • Demonstrate fun activities and games using a parachute, a hula hoop, bean bags and other equipment
  • Read stories, sing songs and teach children about making good nutritional choices
  • Prepare and demonstrate healthy snacks


*Support for this program was provided by a grant from United Way of Summit County.
