Become a program leader

BodyWorks program leaders come from a variety of backgrounds: health educators, doctors, community or faith-based leaders, schools nurses, graduate students, work-site wellness program coordinators, promotoras, and many, many others. You can be trained in a one-day session to implement this program and learn to train others to do the same. Experience facilitating groups and a commitment to improving the health of families in your community are the most important requirements.

Once you've been trained, you can then:

  • Lead an 8-week BodyWorks program with families and
  • Train community members to become new BodyWorks program leaders
