Making a Community Healthy

Story for All partnered with Hayward’s Cherryland Elementary to bring an after school class series focused on health. Students learned active listening, journaling and interview skills. Students had the opportunity to interview their parents, teachers, peers and community leaders.

During the process, students both uncovered data and became part of the conversation on what makes their community healthy.
