Recreation Sampler

This community-level intervention provides best-practice physical activity (PA) education with a collaborative community approach. AmeriCorps members and community volunteers will assess community PA assets/gaps and design a PA plan annually. Members will create a PA Tasting plan and implement PA Tastings in the community that are one-time physical activity demonstrations designed to provide community members with various low-cost/no-cost opportunities that can be easily practiced. The Promoting Active Communities (PAC) Assessment will be completed with community partners, so together they can assess existing supports for physical activity, identify areas for improvement, and implement action plans to enhance access to physical activity opportunities in the community.

  • 1,075 community members are projected to participate over the course of the grant.
