The Eating Right and Physical Activity Program

The Eating Right and Physical Activity Program

Many research, notably a 2011 study from the University of Melbourne in Australia – find that children who eat well have fewer mental health issues than kids who have poor diets.  Also, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, state that one-third of all teenagers are overweight and 17 percent are obese.  Against this background, the College for Ama-USA youth are educated on the health benefits of healthy diet and engaging in physical activity.  They are therefore encouraged to eat nutritional meals, fruits and select healthy snacks as well as make physical activity a part of their everyday lives.  By selecting nutritious foods and engaging in some amount of physical activity, it is believed, they are more likely to boost their mental health as well.

 

MOVIE TIME

The saying that “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” reinvigorated the College for Ama-USA youth to enjoy movie time together with family.  They also had some fun before beginning the school year.  It is hoped that they will continue to work hard on academics, physical activities and select healthy eating habits.

Leigh Steinberg once said:

“It is soooooo necessary to get the basic skills, because by the time you graduate, undergraduate or graduate, that field would have totally changed from your first day of school.”

Well done Graduates with GPAs ranging from 2.4 to 3.85 and gained admissions to prestigious institutions such as Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, Montclair, Villanova and Northeastern in the Arts, Natural Sciences and Business Administration.

Best friends! You have formed a bond of support over the years and have both successfully made it.  It is time to look into the future to explore other opportunities out there given your immense potential.

You have worked so hard and built a strong foundation to continue schooling at the university.

Which Comes First — School or Work?

Which Comes First — School or Work?

COLLEGE FOR AMA-USA’s  MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER, DIANE DAVIS, MSW, SHARES HER INSIGHTS ON THIS QUESTION DURING A WORKSHOP WITH A COFA FAMILY.

It is hoped that individual families will make independent decisions according to the distinct needs of their families while at the same time considering whether or not Deferred Gratification as learned during the workshop is critical for long-term future prospects.
