Ever Active Schools

In Residence

With Ever Active Schools In Residence, you can create new opportunities for student leadership, physical literacy, social and emotional learning, community development and wellness for all.

Customized Support

Your Health and Wellness Consultant will work with you to learn what your school needs and come up with a plan to make it happen.

Whole School Change

EAS In Residence utilizes students as change agents. We'll work with staff and a student leadership team to create a school-wide culture of wellness.

Year-long Access

We're in it for the long haul, because change takes time. You'll have ongoing support from a Health and Wellness Consultant all year long.

What exactly is EAS In Residence?

Ever Active Schools In Residence is a full year of customized support to build a culture of health and wellness in your school community. It is built around a four-day in-school residency as well as extensive preparation and follow-up work to learn how you operate, what you need and opportunities for growth. Our program will work with your school to meet the Canadian Healthy Schools Standards.

In addition to the residency, you'll receive a professional learning workshop for your entire staff team. During the in-residence week, the EAS team will train your student leadership team (a multi-grade group, a whole class, or a grade team) and work alongside them to bring school wellness initiatives to life. We will assist your school in joining the AMA Youth Run Club and getting your club moving. A school representative will be invited to attend our Shaping the Future conference – THE premiere comprehensive school health conference that will connect you with peers, researchers and other experts in the field. Plus, you'll receive a suite of resources to help your school with on-the-ground implementation. Finally, you'll enjoy ongoing access to your Health and Wellness Consultant, who knows the ins and outs of your school and your plan, to help you pivot and adapt to emerging priorities.

Interested? Get in touch with an EAS Health and Wellness Consultant by emailing plo@everactive.org to learn what we can do for you, starting at $12 per student. No commitment is required.

"Ever Active Schools showed my students that being active doesn't need to be elaborate, multi-rule games based on competition. As a class, we enjoyed being active all the time. We enjoyed simple games in not only the gymnasium, but also outside on the compound and even incorporated these simple games within the classroom through different subjects."

"I feel like I was able to help the kids more and that I am able to actually teach them skills. It’s rare to have these opportunities in our communities. I feel like it allows us to build our resumes and will give us more opportunities to give back to our community in the future, which I am thankful for.”
