Easter Seals Family Learning Center, New Haven, Connecticut



       The successful 4-H FANs program at the Easter Seals Family Learning Center, is benefiting both students and their families. Students love the various activities and clubs that 4-H brings to them. They enjoy utilizing the video games and non-traditional activities as a way to keep active. “Our students look forward to the weekly visits from student and adult volunteers, and speak highly of the program with their friends,” says Miriam Johnson, Site Coordinator.
      In addition to the students, parents enjoy family activities, and comment on how much fun it is to compete with their children in games or dancing competitions. 
     “We have made huge progress in implementing fitness and nutrition at our Family Learning Center program,” Johnson says. “This has only been possible through our partnership with 4-H and the 4-H FANs program. We are forever grateful for the opportunity, and look forward to another year.”
