BodyWorks program leaders come from many backgrounds: health educators, doctors, community or faith-based leaders, school 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.
We offer a variety of resources for program leaders to help plan your program and spread the word.
Current BodyWorks program leaders offer their advice on recruiting for your program, engaging participants, keeping families interested, and much more.
Program leaders are encouraged to submit training dates to our searchable calendar. This is a great way to promote and find training programs in your area.
Toolkits are available for download in English and Spanish. You can also order hard copies of the Spanish toolkit, as well as limited pieces of the English toolkit.
