Los Angeles is one of several California cities offering CATCH Healthy Habits, a unique intergenerational physical activity and nutrition program that benefits two generations: kids and adults age 50-plus.
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.
You can help.
Research shows that adults over 50 who volunteer have lower rates of depression and martality 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.
