The Spring 2019 FitPHX Energy Zones program is an innovative after-school program and community-based research study aimed at making Phoenix one of the healthiest cities in the nation. Interns gain hands-on experience running a community-based intervention study promoting healthy behavior change in middle-school aged youths. Working in small teams, interns deliver an interactive afterschool curriculum through food demonstrations and embodied learning lessons and activities and provide 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity to promote healthy behaviors in youths. Interns also actively collect data for the research study pertaining to self-esteem, self-efficacy, health literacy, and program assessment throughout the course of the program.
Qualified candidates should be outgoing, critical thinkers, physically active, and enthusiastic about mentoring incredible kids! Ideal candidates need basic nutrition knowledge and experience working with middle schoolers, but can come from any major. Interns must also be friendly and energetic, team-oriented, be flexible and have patience, and be able to think on their toes.
