Richmond County Physical Activity Strategy
Nova Scotia Rural Active Transportation Summit
After the Bell
Working with schools and communities to establish After the Bell, a program offering junior high students in rural areas a wide variety of free, safe opportunities to be physically active at a time of day when young people are often less active.
The BaM Program
The BaM program is an extracurricular physical activity leadership program, supported by school staff and community partners. The overall goal of BaM is to engage youth in the process of building healthier communities through the development of physical activity initiatives in their schools and communities. This is accomplished though leadership development, creation of action plans and ongoing support by school Adult Champions who in turn are supported by an external Partnership Committee.
BaM is targeted to grade 9 to 12 students who you feel show leadership development potential and especially those who may not be involved in organized school activities.
