Black Girls Move is an obesity prevention program for 9th and 10th grade young ladies. Black Girls Move celebrates the Black experience through a reflection on the history of African culture and the contemporary influence on Black culture today. Black Girls Move consists of 12 group sessions to help participants to set and self-monitor physical activity and dietary goals.
We incorporate a variety of videos, storytelling, role play, discussion, and activities to achieve session outcomes. The sessions are led by trained facilitators who follow a standardized facilitator manual.
