School Programs

The HealthCorps School curriculum is composed of three sections — Mental Resilience, Nutrition and Fitness. This curriculum is aimed at both educating students and providing a holistic and relevant view of the role health plays in their lives.

The curriculum is taught in two manners. With our Living Labs program, HealthCorps Coordinators work in classrooms, the lunchroom and run after-school clubs to provide materials that integrate these elements into a comprehensive health education. Apply to be a Coordinator today.

In the fall of 2012, HealthCorps introduced HealthCorps University, a train the trainer professional development program that makes the HealthCorps principles and curriculum available to virtually any school. For more information, please contact HCU@HealthCorps.org.

Living Labs

Mental Resilience: The You Factor

Mental resilience workshops are incorporated throughout the curriculum by promoting self-esteem, enhancing decision-making and communication skills, fostering healthy relationships, and setting long-term goals. HealthCorps shows students the close relationship between physical health and mental health and enables teens to make healthy choices to bolster mental well-being.

Students learn to:

  • Understand that the mind and body are integrally connected
  • Recognize their strengths and self-worth
  • Recognize realistic, healthy body-types
  • Understand that mental health affects physical health
  • Better manage their time
  • Communicate effectively and in a positive way
  • Control anger
  • Understand how sleep is vital to their mood and their health

Nutrition: YOU and Finding Nutritional Balance

The nutrition workshops show students practical ways to choose foods that are healthy, how to make simple changes in their eating behaviors and develop a healthy relationship with food that will last a lifetime.

Students learn to:

  • Eat foods from all five food groups
  • Understand the health benefits and the health detriments of fat
  • Think of portion sizes
  • Eat breakfast to lose weight, gain energy, and do better in school
  • Know that the food they eat affects how they look and feel
  • Learn how to lose or gain weight responsibly
  • Choose healthy foods in restaurants
  • Avoid steroids and dubious supplements
  • Cook from scratch

Fitness: YOU and Your Body

HealthCorps students learn how to maximize their caloric burn everyday by making simple lifestyle choices, like taking the stairs instead of the elevator, getting off the subway a few stops earlier to walk, helping around the house with cooking and cleaning, and even dancing!

Students learn to:

  • Exercise on a regular basis
  • Stay fit without gym equipment
  • Develop a weekly workout plan
  • Find creative and alternative ways to stay fit
  • Chiropractic/Spinal Hygiene
