The programs are located at current Active Children Portland program sites and last for 5 to 8 weeks at a time. Active Children Portland takes a holistic approach to teaching children about art, service learning, creative writing, and nutrition through the sports of soccer and basketball combining physical and social “movement.”
Paid coach/mentors and volunteer experts spend 3 days per week and 3 hours per day with the participants helping them learn athletic skills, engage their community, write poetry, create “neighborhood movement maps,” and get hands on experience making and eating healthy meals. To make this happen, Active Children Portland works with summer SUN (Schools Uniting Neighborhoods) Schools to get the participants moving on the field and in their community.
