Ever Active Schools engages in projects to support specific emerging community needs. Some project themes include active school travel, Indigenous youth wellness, activity in the after-school hours, play at school and much more.
Ever Active Schools develops classroom resources to help teachers weave health and wellness into every curriculum. When students learn to be well, they take those skills home and forward into adulthood. Well-being is foundational.
Ever Active Schools delivers workshops to teachers and school staff year-round to increase capacity for wellness activities. We also host province-wide events to encourage collaboration and growth for all education professionals.
About The Charity
Late in 2017, Active Healthy Kids Canada (AHKC), a national charity active in Ontario, was acquired by a board of directors based in Alberta to be a platform for thought leadership, coordination, and awareness for the importance of upstream approaches to healthy school communities. In 2019, the board of directors filed a name change to Ever Active Schools (approved by Canada Revenue Agency, though still in transition on public documents) and assumed governance of a special project of the Health and Physical Education Council of Alberta, operating as Ever Active Schools (EAS) since 2000. The shift in governance enables the alignment of purpose between EAS operations and AHKC charity for enhanced impact, as well as a greater range of possibilities for both strategic guidance and partnerships.
Our work prioritizes the well-being of children and youth, working through school and community settings. In the promotion of optimal health and learning outcomes, we emphasize the role of positive mental health and sense of belonging, equitable access to health and education opportunities, and students as leaders in advancing social issues.
