Hosting a Student Summit: Letting Students Take the Lead on Wellness

Students learn best when it’s from their peers, which is why the Fuel Up to Play 60 program is a great avenue for students to lead while accomplishing health and wellness initiatives. In this webinar, Lori Johnson, Nutrition Manager for the Dairy Council of Florida, will walk attendees through strategies for elevating student leadership in regards to health and wellness and how one group of determined students went beyond the classroom and into their community to show how eating healthy and getting active can make a difference.

After this webinar attendees will be able to:

1.       Describe the Fuel Up to Play 60 program and the role the youth play

2.       Understand how the youth planned and executed the summit

3.       Assess success and challenges with youth leadership
