About HealthClass2.0 (HC2.0):
HC2.0 is a public school program dedicated to inspiring NYC youth to Eat, Exercise & Engage in positive new ways.
“Our philosophy is simple – we see wellness as an avenue for students to cultivate a stronger sense of self and a better shot at success,” says co-founder Natalia Mehlman Petrzela. “We define success broadly and encourage our students to pursue it in small and big ways – from choosing a healthier afterschool snack to being the first in their family to fill out a college application.”
Each session is developed around a particular theme, but in all sessions participants do three things
1. EXERCISE in an intenSati workout that combines high-energy, easy-to-follow movement with spoken affirmations and fun music.
2. EAT a healthy, locally-sourced snack donated by our food partners.
3. ENGAGE in a thoughtful discussion about the food they are consuming, how they can make healthier choices in their own lives, and the connection between their personal choices and their potential to effect change in their own communities.
