About the Program 

In areas of gender and education research, key findings state that male adolescents frequently struggle with issues of body image, low levels of physical activity and unhealthy eating practices. Sound familiar?

In other words, boys and young men today go through much the same turmoil growing up as most of us did in our day. The journey to adulthood is never an easy one, but it can be smoothed out with the guidance and support of a mentor who cares and understands. More importantly, mentoring can help cement an active, healthy lifestyle that nourishes self-esteem and confidence.

Game On! Eat Smart, Play Smart, Live Smart

Game On! is a free group mentoring program for boys between 11 and 14 years old. In groups of 8-14, boys are provided with information and support to make informed choices about a range of healthy lifestyle practices through non-traditional physical activities complemented with healthy eating support.  Participants are engaged in discussions about life skills, communication, and emotional well-being in the pursuit of life-long healthy lifestyles.

  • Openly discuss current and pressing issues facing boys and young men through the lens of healthy living
