CATCH Healthy Habits in Maryland!

You stay healthy. Kids get healthy. 

Washington Metropolitan OASIS is proud to annouce the arrival of CATCH Healthy Habits, a unique intergenerational program that encourages healthy eating and active living. 

Why CATCH Healthy Habits? 

Obesity rates in America have tripled for children and doubled for older adults in the last 30 years. The program combats this serious public problem of obesity by engaging adults age 50+ as mentors to teach healthy lifelong habits to kids in grades K-5.

You can help! 

Research shows that adults age 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! Teams of volunteers work with children in after-school and summer programs for up to 25 sessions.

For more information on volunteering, contact LaKisha Harris, 301-469-6800 press 1, then dial x211, or lharri81@jhmi.edu
