After School Gets Moving: Training for After School Staff and Game Guide

The “After School Gets Moving” DVD presents a two-part staff development program.

 

DVD Part 1: Training for After School Staff: explains why movement matters so much to children’s health; explores challenges that get in the way when incorporating more physical activity in after school; and presents strategies to help overcome obstacles.

 

DVD Part 2: Game Guide consists of easy-to-follow, visual demonstrations to help staff learn how to play and lead a variety of games.

 

The Leader’s Guide is a companion to the “After School Gets Moving” DVD program. It is a resource for after school program directors to train after school program staff, paraprofessionals, and volunteers who work in after school programs serving children in grades K-5. Together, the DVD and Leader’s Guide show how to promote more safe and healthy physical activity in after school -- particularly in environments where space and other resources are limited.

Generation Found

From the creators of the groundbreaking film, THE ANONYMOUS PEOPLE, comes GENERATION FOUND, a powerful story about one community coming together to ignite a youth addiction recovery revolution in their hometown. Devastated by an epidemic of addiction, Houston faced the reality of burying and locking up its young people at an alarming rate. And so in one of the largest cities in America, visionary counselors, law school dropouts, aspiring rock musicians, retired football players, oil industry executives, and church leaders came together to build the world’s largest peer-driven youth and family recovery community.

Independently filmed over the course of two years, GENERATION FOUND takes an unprecedented and intimate look at how a system of treatment centers, sober high schools, alternative peer groups, and collegiate recovery programs can exist in concert to intervene early and provide a real and tested long-term alternative to the “War on Drugs.” It is not only a deeply personal story, but one with real-world utility for communities struggling with addiction worldwide.
