Holistic Enrichment for School & Expanded Learning Student Development
Integrating the Mind, Body, & Spirit to Elevate Student Performance
WHY: During the school day students are tasked with hours of academic rigor, they are focusing on results-driven content, their minds are over stimulated by technology, they eat nutrient-deprived lunches (or skip important meals), they participate in little or no physical movement and there is less and less time for creative expression. By the time they arrive to the expanded learning program students are: functioning on high stress levels; unable to sustain their focus; socially and emotionally disconnected; under-stimulated and hyped up on poor food choices. All of these factors cause low energy and irritable or even volatile behavior.
WHAT: Nutritional Empowerment Enrichment is a holistic approach to creating a well-rounded student. By developing the mind, strengthening the body (nutrition and exercise), and fueling the spirit of each child, the student will increase their awareness, connection, and commitment to the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of development and growth.
HOW: Integrating the Mind, Body, & Spirit approach into the holistic development of today’s youth during expanded learning hours has a variety of well documented and researched impacts.
Students will build necessary life skills in the following areas:
Improved attention span in academic classes, sports, and arts
Develop stronger sense of self and groundedness
All resulting in increased school attendance
When participating in the Nutritional Empowerment Enrichment model, students become more secure, more self-aware and more empathetic. They will become positive contributors to their communities and develop a greater understanding of themselves and the world they live in.
