PARTNERSHIP / SPONSORSHIP / GRANT-FUNDEd


​proactive kids has one goal: to help overweight and obese children reach a healthy weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle.   

to do that, we are  flexible in ways we partner and how we work with organizations like yours to expand this program into more communities. together, increase the number of participants served, while ultimately decreasing the number of children who are overweight/obese.  

whether your organization is a hospital, park district, health organization, health plan, health coalition, fqhc, insurance company or other, we can work with you to take on the issue of childhood obesity.

how proactive kids expands into new communities
The PAK curriculum has been designed and standardized to be duplicated and sustained at any organization, in any community. The key is to deliver a consistent, sustainable and proven approach at every location and measure the results across our communities. proactive kids can expand through direct partnership, sponsorship and grant funding. 


partnership/sponsorship 
the most common expansion strategy is  partnership/sponsorship with hospitals. please visit the hospital partnership page to learn more. 

grant-funded
proactive kids can work closely with your organization to write a grant to get the program funded, and are happy to do so! Or if your hospital funds community-based programs via grants, we can apply that way.
