CATCH Healthy Habits in San Diego

San Diego is one of only several California cities offering the CATCH Healthy Habits program, a unique, evidence based, intergenerational physical activity and nutrition program that benefits two generations: kids (K-5) and adults age 50-plus.

The CATCH Healthy Habits program combats the serious problem of childhood obesity by engaging adults as mentors, to teach healthy lifelong habits to kids. CATCH Healthy Habits pairs teams of adults with elementary school kids. Classes meet once a week for 8-week sessions. Hour sessions include fun games and exercises, preparing healthy snacks and learning about good food choices. As a volunteer, you not only help promote healthy habits for kids, but also gain experience for yourself!
