PPW Physical Activity Partners
Because physical inactivity and excess screen time are strongly associated with increased substance use and substance use disorders among young people, Prevention Plus Wellness (PPW) has partnered with several physical activity and sports organizations to counter physical inactivity’s influence on substance use as well as enhance the broader mental and physical wellbeing of youth and young adults.
Prevention Plus Wellness, LLC is proud to be recognized by @HHSHealthGov as a National Youth Sports Strategy (NYSS) Champion for our work in promoting awareness of the importance of youth sports and physical activity for increasing the mental and physical wellbeing of youth.
We encourage all substance use prevention and health organizations serving youth learn more about NYSS and how you can promote youth sports and physical activity participation in your area: https://bit.ly/3k9DZw6
The National Youth Sports Strategy aims to unite U.S. youth sports culture around a shared vision: that one day, all youth will have the opportunity, motivation, and access to play sports.
The Strategy is based on research and best practices from the scientific community and successful youth sports programs across the United States.
It offers actionable ideas for parents, coaches, organizations, communities, and policymakers to support youth sports participation for all.
Prevention Plus Wellness, LLC is partnering with Good Sports, Inc. to increase awareness of and access to sports and physical activity, while preventing substance use among youth in high-need communities.
Sports and physical activity are essential to youth mental and physical development. They are also ideal situations to prevent youth from initiating substance use that can harm their mental and physical wellbeing.
Good Sports creates opportunities for youth to participate in sports and physical activities by providing donations of brand-new sports equipment, apparel and footwear to youth-serving organizations, such as schools, Boys & Girls Clubs, Parks and Recreation programs and others.
