It’s Your Life! Health Curriculum

It’s Your Life! is a hands-on training curriculum for teachers that integrates fitness, nutrition, self-esteem, anti-smoking, and anti-bullying across disciplines at elementary schools.

More than 70 East Baton Rouge Parish teachers have participated in this new wellness training program established by Mayor-President Melvin L. "Kip" Holden's Fresh Beginnings Program to help combat childhood obesity.  The six-hour, hands-on training provides teachers with fun, tangible ways to meet the new health and wellness guidelines.
