Supporting New Roles to Promote Holistic Wellness
When communities or school districts invest in hiring a Wellness Coordinator, a period of mentorship can help that person transition into their role, identify best practices, and learn from local and provincial successes. One of the roles of the Ever Active Schools Resiliency Coordinator is to provide this mentorship by supporting:
- Program development;
- The creation of School Wellness Teams;
- Reviewing and drafting school policies and curriculum;
- Determining budget priorities;
- And more.
