Global Partners-At Home volunteers foster resilience in students, teachers, and families by partnering with schools and organizations in the communities in which we live and work. By engaging in meaningful relationships with our neighbors, we can elevate the health of our communities while gaining a broader understanding of issues that influence health.
- Individually, mentors will serve as a positive role model in helping students thrive during their time at school. Mentored students may have improved academic performance, fewer disciplinary referrals, and greater display of school district values. Education is strongly linked with health. According to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, "people with more education are likely to live longer, to experience better health outcomes, and to practice health-promoting behaviors."
- Departments, organizations, and businesses can adopt-a-classroom and provide funding for field trips or in-kind donations of healthy snacks and resources to enrich learning.
- Volunteers with monthly Family Nights serve meals, play a game or sport, assist with a craft, or simply converse with a neighbor to promote a healthy, fun evening.
