HOST

We are a national coalition of leaders in the Out-of-School Time (OST) field.


Our goal is to foster health and well-being practices in afterschool programs nationwide, using science-based standards for healthy eating, physical activity, screen time, and social supports for these behaviors including staff, family, and child engagement.


We encourage OST leaders and program staff to explore the evidence-based Healthy Eating and Physical Activity (HEPA) Standards.

 

We're now on social media! Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
