GSCM-Healthy Choices
 
 
 
GSCM delivers on its mission through the provision of research-based programs in a variety of venues, using experiential learning techniques and producing impact in girls in K-12 in the national priority areas of STEM education/career aspirations, the outdoors, life skills and entrepreneurship. The Health/Wellness program developer will help address the obesity epidemic in young women attending Baltimore City public schools, and impact the low educational achievement levels produced by poor nutrition. The program will embrace diversity, equity and inclusion in the nutrition elements incorporated; in the urban farming service projects developed, and in the use of step dance as a main vehicle for moderate-to-vigorous activity.

Member Duties : The Americorps VISTA will expand capacity at GSCM to reach communities of girls K-12 with emphasis this year on grades 6 through 8, and their families for the delivery of age-appropriate, culturally competent health and wellness programming. The VISTA member will improve access to nutritious food for girls and young women through work with groups of girls on their service-learning project to earn a Girl Scout Bronze or Silver Award, through urban farming or community gardening. The position will develop increased opportunities for physical activities including outdoor activities, and expand the scope of healthy futures in order to (1) improve overall health and resiliency against disease, and (2) to positively impact academic achievement. The VISTA project will build organizational capacity, leverage coordination between GSCM and community partners and refine curricula, resources and systems necessary to sustain the program and to produce improvement in measurable outcomes.
