Mobile Recreation Program: Mission Statement

“We deliver healthy activities and nutrition education to kids all over town! Our Mobile Recreation Vans are large cargo vehicles outfitted with balls, jump ropes, bases and other supplies for field games, fitness, nutrition, and fun art projects for kids” (Mobile Recreation).

Service Project Purpose

“The Mobile Recreation Unit was launched in February 2008 to address programming deficiencies identified by the Mayor's Council on Children and Youth. Accessibility, both in terms of location and cost, was identified as a major obstacle facing families looking for safe, quality after-school programming for their children. The Mobile Recreation Unit is intended to help alleviate the accessibility issue and provide safe, supervised activities near to home” (Mobile Recreation).

Learning goals
