While other Brunswick County teens were enjoying their day off on Friday, March 30, Brunswick County 4-H Teens in Leadership Training (TiLT) were working hard to prepare school enrichment for kindergartners and fourth- through eighth-graders. These innovative leaders created CalciYum for Kindergartners kits and planned lessons for Health Rocks!
The CalciYum for Kindergartners kits are designed to teach kindergartners, through interactive activities, the importance of calcium, vitamin D and exercise for strong bones. This program is the first of its kind. The N.C. Osteoporosis Foundation has extended a grant to partners Cheryle Syracuse of the Food and Consumer Science staff and 4-H staff and TiLT teens to have teens learn and teach about osteoporosis.
Health Rocks! is an interactive, hands-on approach to train young people to make healthy life style choices and to reduce and prevent their consumption of tobacco, alcohol and drugs designed to be taught by teen/adult partnerships.
TiLT teens included in this all-day workday included Angelique and Alexis Apple, John and Dillon Bernheisel, Olivia Bowers, Kenan Bridges, Camille Carr, Sammi Lawrence, John Macon, Savanna Michaux and Amber Yurgel. These teens will be visiting area schools, beginning with Belville Elementary, on Monday, April 23.
