SOSMentor offers four different health education programs, serving 16,000+ elementary, middle and high school students in 800 schools across Los Angeles Unified School District. Each program takes a slightly different approach in order to reach diverse groups of students, but all four programs emphasize education, mentoring, health advocacy and leadership.
LAUSD Healthy Schools Campaign
More than 16,000 students in 800 elementary, middle and high schools throughout LAUSD learn about nutrition and physical activity after school for six weeks. They teach their parents and family members about healthy living and create posters for a district-wide Healthy Messages Art Contest.
Healthy Athletes Program
High school athletic teams and physical education classes learn about sports nutrition and participate in sport-specific training with a certified trainer. Students earn service-learning credit by teaching their peers and family members what they learned.
