- Live Well
Since 2011, PAL has been working with area schools and school districts interested in wellness programs and policies. Healthier Generation’s "Healthy Schools Program" is the foundation for our work with schools. The Healthier Generation framework focuses on a coordinated approach that fosters healthy eating, physical activity and emotional wellness for students, staff and families.
From 2016 - 2020, PAL was the implementation partner for the Spartanburg Healthy Schools Initiative. Our partnerships with Spartanburg School Districts 1, 2, 3, and 6, the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, and the Mary Black Foundation enabled us to provide essential tools and resources for improving the health of Spartanburg’s children, families, and community at-large. PAL supported the four Spartanburg School Districts and nine schools with developing and implementing best-practice models to be expanded to other schools in Spartanburg.
