As an adult facilitator, you lead the adult lesson on that week’s topic, aimed at motivating and educating parents in order to empower them to make health conscious changes to their lives and those of their children. Adult facilitators are given a Powerpoint and guide to teaching the lesson that should be reviewed in advance. In the class, they both teach the lesson and facilitate conversation between adults. They are also asked to participate with families in the physical activity for the week. Adult facilitators are required to be conversationally fluent in Spanish to sign up for a Spanish lesson.
As a child facilitator, you lead the children’s lesson and activity, aimed at educating children on healthy decisions that they can make in their everyday lives. These lessons are generally very interactive, and facilitators are welcome to elaborate on any topic they wish if they feel comfortable doing so. Child facilitators are given a guide to the lesson and any supplies necessary to teach it. They are also asked to participate with families in the week’s physical activity. Spanish speaking Child Facilitators are expected to have experience with Spanish, but less than that of Adult Facilitators.
Committee member volunteer positions are filled by members of the FIT for Health student committee. Committee members aid volunteers and the class coordinator as needed, and help the program run smoothly.

The class coordinator is responsible for bringing supplies, preparing facilitators for their roles before the program begins, ensuring the class remains on schedule, and helping volunteers and families as needed.
