Community Health Advocates

Community Health Advocate Roles

 

Members serving as CHA’s will lead fitness and health education activities in 26 HUSD school sites. CHAs will engage parents ingeneral nutrition and fitness classes, using the USDA’s Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program and Food and Fitness Festival from Lawrence Hall of Science. We will offer an 8-week series of weekly courses twice a year.

Members serving as Parent Advocates, based at the Parent Centers at the same 26 schools, will engage parents in general nutrition and fitness classes (8-week series twice a year), engage kids and families together in cooking-based nutrition education (weekly) and physical activities (weekly), and engage parents in classes on health and disease prevention issues (each month). We anticipate that from 25 to 40 families per school will participate in at least one of these activities regularly. Members/Parent Advocates will also assist families in meeting other health-related needs via referrals to community service providers. 

Goal: Two eight week workshops per year with 15 parent participants 

 

In 2010, CHA's conducted 941 surveys and of those participants, 734 parents (78%) were NOT in the “Healthy Living Zone” (scored below 70% on Healthy Activity Survey). Thus, 734 parents were determined to be the “high needs". 187 high need parents participated in 27 (or more) hours of fitness/nutrition education. Thus the need for Community Health Advocates!
