Exchange City After School

Offered to middle school students in Providence, Exchange City After School is a fun way for students to work together with their peers as they run their very own city!

Young Star ACTIVE-ists

Young Stars ACTIVE-ists is a hands-on exploration of social entrepreneurship and health and wellness concepts.  Students identify key health issues in their community and develop an action plan to combat the discovered ailments, with a primary focus on childhood obesity. Students design an action plan that should be centered around a product, club, or program which informs the community about pressing health issues or helps fight said health issues.  After the product is developed the students will present it to a ‘board of investors/nurses’ who offer a critique and assist in its implementation!

Past products includes items such as a healthy snack book, school exercise club, and a booklet of kid-center exercises.
