OASIS is a unique educational program for adults age 50-plus who want to learn, grow and explore new ideas. We promote successful aging through lifelong learning, health programs and volunteer engagement.
CATCH Healthy Habits is sponsored in Denver by Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield Foundation.
CATCH Healthy Habits pairs adults 50-plus with children to encourage healthier eating and physical activity.
OASIS collaborates with Senior Resource Center, Inc. to offer the CATCH Healthy Habits Program in the Denver area.
The CATCH program combats the serious public health problem of obesity by engaging mature adults as mentors to teach healthy lifelong habits to kids in grades K - 5.
Research shows that adults over 50 who volunteer have lower rates of depression and mortality and greater functional ability than those who do not volunteer. And as a CATCH volunteer, you are not only helping promote healthy habits for kids but also gaining that experience for yourself! Being involved in the CATCH program also provides the opportunity to experience the rewards of meaningful community service.
Here are the CATCH Healthy Habits sites for spring 2014:
CATCH volunteers have fun as they promote healthy habits for kids and for themselves. To find out about volunteer opportunities with CATCH Healthy Habits in Denver, email Leslie Moser, or call 303.235.6947.
