Where can I get a grant to implement a wellness/fitness program at my school for staff?
The teachers and other staff members have been asking how we can have a exercise program after school, are there any grants/wellness centerrs out there who would like to take on this initiative to help our staff stay fit and healthy so they can better help their students mentain healthy habits.
Another option is to create or search for a grant via grant.gov
I personally would want to create my own initiative by partnering with the school administration, physical ed teachers, and nurse staff.
one thing I would like to add to Denise's excellent advice: without money from an external source at all, you can start a walking program, and you can do it immediately. It often takes only for somebody to say where and when to meet, and people will go. The greatest obstacle I hear about walking is that people say that they do not like to walk by themselves.
This would be a good way to get started, and it does not preclude you from looking at other avenues that may be more professional and comprehensive.
I wish you good luck.
