Mission Continues Platoon Members, Coach Across America coaches and the youth of Henry Street Settlement all converged on Saturday, February 8th for an afternoon of fitness activities, nutrition sessions and fun. CAA coaches and platoon members worked together to educate youth on a variety of topics related to sports-based youth development, including the science of physical activity, nutrition and life skills.
At one station, participants made Compliment Boards for each other, where they wrote a nice thing about each person in the group.
Coach Across America coaches and Mission Continues Veteran Fellows talk to youth about the importance of physical fitness.
