Covenant BodyMind Initiative
The Covenant BodyMind Initiative enhancement activities and community outreach looks to create supportive environments and resources for participants. Enhancement activities are planned on alternating semesters of the school curriculum. Suggested activities are included in this manual and a minimum of three per semester is recommended. The goal is to enhance the participant’s knowledge and skills related to the school curriculum. Community enhancement activities also serve as a teaching opportunity for school staff and community members; thereby promoting a healthy setting for the participants. Local environments need to provide safe, enjoyable, and inexpensive physical activity opportunities, and healthy food choices (O’Dea, 2005).
