The theme incorporated different learning workshops, scenario-based simulations, and motivated the youth to engage in conversations with firemen, police officers, doctors and other professionals they may have once feared. The curriculum throughout the day allowed the youth to understand how the media plays a major role in shaping their values about nutrition and physical activities. Through interactive sessions they were also encouraged to think critically and make healthy lifestyle choices.
Learning while having fun with their peers, children are more likely to consider eating healthy, become more active, think critically when watching advertisements, read labels, and more. Through a close-up tour of a fire truck, the youth were also given a well-rounded overview with tips from these emergency responders. Meanwhile, parents and caretakers were in separate learning sessions to explore best practices in reinforcing and integrating many of the topics their children were getting to learn.
The event encouraged their whole family to live a healthier, safer, and more united lifestyle. Each family that attended walked away with a unique and personal experience which would encourage them to generate positive habits.
