#SBCMentorChallenge to recruit mentors for county’s youth

mentor-challengeSan Bernardino County Children’s Network is hoping to begin 2017 with a few hundred new mentors for San Bernardino County youth.

Once one is approved to be a mentor, they will have a chance to be a consistent and positive adult presence in a young person’s life, provide advice, share life experiences, and help a young person face challenges. In honor of National Mentoring Month, San Bernardino County Mentoring Task Force is seeking to recruit 200 mentors for San Bernardino County youth.

Children’s Network is also launching the #SBCMentorChallenge social media campaign to recruit prospective mentors and create awareness about the need for mentors of San Bernardino County youth. Community members are encouraged to participate in the #SBCMentorChallenge campaign which will highlight the importance of mentors.

Community members are encouraged to record videos on their smartphones or tablets in which they share their own inspiring experiences as mentors or mentees. If one has not been a mentor or a mentee, one can make a video sharing why they hope to become a mentor to a San Bernardino County youth. At the end of each video, posters should then “tag” three friends, colleagues, or community partners on social media and challenge them or those in the agency to become youth mentors and record their own inspiring mentor/mentee videos. All videos should be posted on social media with the hashtag:  #SBCMentorChallenge

“We are looking forward to what this campaign will bring for youth,” said Doreen Ivery, Children’s Network’s Mentoring Resource Coordinator. “We also look forward to community leaders being a part of this campaign and challenging others to participate in this challenge to recruit mentors.”

Those interested in becoming a mentor are encouraged to contact Ivery at  909 383-9677 or divery@hss.sbcounty.gov Children’s Network is doing its part to help the community achieve the Countywide Vision by ensuring residents have the resources they need to provide the necessities of life to their families. Information on the Countywide Vision can be found at www.sbcounty.gov/vision.

Board of Supervisors endorse Vision2BActive initiative

Tvision-2bactivehe Board of Supervisors on Dec. 20 endorsed Vision2BActive, a new campaign designed to encourage physical activity with the goal of improving health and wellness in San Bernardino County.

 

Only 23 percent of San Bernardino County adults and 34 percent of our youth get the recommended amount of physical activity, according to the most recent data from the California Health Interview Survey. In its 2008 issuance of “Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans,” the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommended adults get 150 minutes a week of physical activity and children ages 5 to 17 were encouraged to move at least 60 minutes a day.

 

“We know that a healthy community means a prosperous community and that’s why we support Vision2BActive,” said James Ramos, chairman of the Board of Supervisors. “I encourage residents to make the time to be physically active and take advantage of opportunities to play in the county’s parks, lakes, deserts and mountains. Let’s welcome 2017 with a New Year’s Resolution to get healthy.”

 

Health has a direct and profound impact on the quality of life of the county. Vision2BActive supports the public’s Vision for a “complete community”, especially the jobs and the economy, education, wellness and public safety elements of the community. It is a public campaign of the community-driven Community Vital Signs effort, which has completed an in-depth analysis of the current health of the county, developed evidence-based goals and priorities, and gathered resources to assist organizations and agencies in the county to develop or enhance programs and policies to better meet the health and wellness needs of residents.

 

Regular physical activity can produce a variety of long-term benefits for San Bernardino County residents regardless of their age, background or abilities. Physical activity is fun and includes the easiest movement such as walking or throwing a ball around to the most challenging exercise like running or mountain biking. Throughout the campaign, Vision2BActive.com will serve as a resource and provide residents with information about physical activity events, fitness tips and a GIS map featuring places to be active in the county.

 

The San Bernardino Associated Governments (SANBAG) Board of Directors will be asked to endorse Vision2BActive at its Jan. 4 meeting.

 

On Jan. 7, all San Bernardino County residents are encouraged to get their New Year’s Resolutions started and participate in the Vision2BActive Challenge. Post a photo or video or livestream a physical activity such as gardening, walking, or playing basketball, on social media using #Vision2BActive and challenge three friends to participate. Posts will be shared on Facebook at San Bernardino Countywide Vision or on Twitter and Instagram @SBCVision.

 

The Countywide Vision was adopted in June 2011 by the Board of Supervisors and the SANBAG Board of Directors in partnership with the community in order to develop a roadmap for the future of San Bernardino County, which includes creating a healthy and prosperous future for all who live, work and play here. Vision2BActive is the second public campaign of the Countywide Vision Project following the successful Vision2Read literacy initiative that started in September 2015.

Wrightwood Elementary students form a ‘Walking School Bus’

walking-school-busA Walking School Bus is a group of children who walk to school together under the supervision of trained adult leaders. The program promotes good health, a cleaner environment, and reduced traffic around school.

At Wrightwood Elementary School, students participate in the Walking School Bus on most days and by the time they get to school they are alert and ready to learn because they have had their exercise. This is a great example of how children and adults can get physical activity into their daily routine.

Click here for more information about the program. Click here to get involved or start something similar in your community.

This program is a great example of children and adults who have a Vision2BActive!
