HEALTH EDUCATION

SEGCP education programs  aim to  improve  eating habits and physical activity  among members in the community.  The program also helps diabetics and individuals in the community manage their disease. The GREEN TEENS is one of SEGCP strategies to bring fresh produce to needy diabetics and their families. Teen girls enrolled in the project are responsible to work towards a goal through out the year.  They also provide healthy recipes for cooked meals with fresh garden produce to selected diabetic participants.  They are also the keepers of the garden.  Twice a month, they visit the garden to clean, plant, weed  and check on the produce.  Fit Dance classes are provided and available to youth by local  centers offering free classes to these participants. A collaborative agreement is made between these center to partner up for the benefit of those not able to pay a membership. 

SEGCP also work close with the Expanded Food & Nutrition Program to bring local families education on how to eat healthy on a budget. this is a 8 week / 1 day a week program that teaches all about good nutrition, portion control, and weight management. This program is offered every 3 months o different people, and locations in the community.  Programs are organized by SEGCP, and Trainer Fani Orellao comes to provide this amazing and popular 1 hour session a week for 8 weeks.
