CATCH Healthy Habits is a unique intergenerational physical activity and nutrition program that benefits two generations – kids and adults. The program combats heart disease and obesity by engaging mature adults as mentors to teach healthy lifelong habits to kids in grades K – 5.

You can help. Become a CATCH Healthy Habits volunteer!

CATCH Healthy Habits is seeking active adult volunteers as mentors in a series of twelve one-hour sessions, in area summer and after-school programs. Each session includes a healthy snack, an interactive nutrition lesson, and fun games and exercises. As a volunteer, you can promote healthy habits for kids and also gain that experience for yourself! We have lots of ways you can help:

What people are saying “Our kids have really been conscious about their healthy habits. A group of students is even putting together a Fit Club. It has been easier to initiate snack improvements and our staff has been more conscious of what we are serving at special events and cooking projects. All in all, CATCH Healthy Habits has increased the awareness and healthy habits of our students, staff and families. Thank you very much for this opportunity!”- Karen Berry, Tucson Unified School District
