Community Partners

Meet our Community Partners. Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.

Wellness in the Schools has been a supporting partner to the Office of School Wellness in many small ways over the last 15 years, whether it was sitting together on city wide task forces, wellness advisory boards, or coalitions all fighting to help support wellness programs in NYC. This year for the first time we have joined forces along with Exos to help empower and educate Physical Education teachers with our Coach Council and Coaches Summit. “This program will provide invaluable opportunities for our coaches to learn from other elite coaches, practitioners, and experts in the field and encourages them to connect with their colleagues to bring back the knowledge they’ve gleaned to make a lasting impact on their students and schools,” said Liz McSpedon, NYC’s Office of School Wellness Instructional Specialist and Coach Council Member.
