Copy of Health Promise
Offering physical fitness and nutritional programs for the whole community! An initiative of East Austin College Prep and Southwest Key’s East Austin Children’s Promise.
Poverty, unemployment, crime, dropping out of school, and obesity rates are all high in the East Austin neighborhood of Govalle-Johnston Terrace. Health Promise, a comprehensive community-based physical education and wellness program started by East Austin College Prep as part of East Austin Children’s Promise seeks to change the rate of obesity in the neighborhood and impact lives with the concept that a healthy body creates a foundation for success in academics, family, and career.
Health Promise was started in 2011 through a Carol M. White Physical Education Grant from the U.S. Department of Education. Additionally in 2012, East Austin College Prep was awarded an H-E-B Excellence in Education Healthy Campus Grant for health and fitness screenings, fitness activities, and nutrition education to increase the overall wellbeing of students, families, and local community.
