Collectively these partners have implemented 1,696 policies, systems and environment improvements, in the areas of Healthy Eating and Active Living, across the twenty-five programs and have positively affected 2,400 youth!

These Out of School Time sites are managed by a cross-sector of organizations: non-profit organizations like the YMCA and Communities in Schools, city and county government through community centers and parks and recreation; churches, schools and others.
Providers have set policies or changed systems to provide students with healthier snacks and meals; worked to create opportunities for exploratory and active play and provided safe learning environments that enrich the lives of our youth.

We hope to continue to recognize these sites and many more as LiveWell Greenville’s Out of School Time Initiative grows to fit the evolving needs of its partners! To find out more about how your site can be recognized in the future, contact matinak@livewellgreenville.org
