Creating Educational Content for Youth

Open Opportunity

About

Are you interested in supporting the growing minds and bodies of young children? 

Family Gym is one of Boston's longest running and FREE wellness focused family playgroups.

We are currently looking for students to help us by creating resources for families to supplement our curriculum which promotes health, wellness, nutrition, and physical activity. Our goal is to keep our participants' bodies and minds moving and growing each week even when we are not physically in session.

Past examples of student created content included guided yoga and workout videos with slideshows of specific poses and moves, healthy recipe handouts, informational handouts about different foods and health conditions, and even activity sheets to keep kids busy through coloring or word searches.

While most of our resources focus on wellness related topics such as sleep, hydration, and dental hygiene, we are also open to the creation of materials related to sports, animals, nature, and science.

Once you sign up for this volunteer opportunity, please email the volunteer coordinator Kevin Wong (kevin.wong@foundationforbcyf.org) to gain access to our shared drive with Hundreds of examples created by students from across the globe.
