Systems Change in After-School Programs to Affect Childhood Obesity Rates
This evaluation examines the implementation and programmatic and systemic outcomes for a health and nutrition curriculum provided to organizations within the Mayor's Time network of youth-serving organizations, most of which are community- or faith-based. The evaluation is looking at organizations' use of the curriculum and increases in provision of health-focused activities, changes in students' attitudes and knowledge about making healthy food choices, and systemic changes in normative structures, resources, regulations, and operations across the Mayor's Time system.
