The Safe Routes to Health AmeriCorps Program at the Michigan Fitness Foundation engages 20 half-time AmeriCorps members to provide service in select Michigan communities between October -September. Members will focus on serving people with unmet health needs in underserved, low-income communities. Using a multigenerational approach, Members will connect citizens to health, wellness, and physical activity programs with assistance from community volunteers that members recruit.
Members will receive valuable and transferable training to deliver programs that supports citizens and communities with the tools to eat healthy and be active. In addition to the five programs members will be trained to deliver, host sites will guide members towards additional, locally relevant projects to benefit the community.
