Good participation at all four events. The program at the Escalante Center really seemed to bring in the teens. Having teens man the booths, such as the Teen Friends of the Tempe Public Library, helped with encouraging the teen patrons to interact with booth activities.” – Nick Escalante, Senior City of Tempe Social Service CoordinatorQuotes from Participants: Quotes from Participants “It was a great experience, and I look forward to it every time it comes up.” -Dimitri Witowski, TPL Teen Friend “I love being active, and Get Real, Get Fit! is a great way to show other people how important (and fun!) a healthy lifestyle can be. Where else can you play active games, learn about nutrition, study DNA, and sample healthy, great-tasting snacks? It just goes to show that anything related to health and exercise doesn't have to be a chore!”- Mimi Ringness, TPL Teen FriendQuotes from Participants: Quotes from Participants "Get Real, Get Fit, is a great opportunity for a community to be involved with educating a crucial age group in the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. It can pass along much needed information using an environment that is geared to the pre-teen and teenage years and exposes whole families to knowledgeable experts and local businesses that they may otherwise have had little contact with." – Lily Rice, TPL employeeProgram Strengths: Program Strengths Replication Community partnerships and connections Health info presented in fun and interactive way Addressed low health literacy skills Teen to Teen interactionProgram Challenges: Program Challenges Finding health experts Recruiting non-library users Keeping festivals fresh with new games, activities, and infoEvaluation / Outcomes: Evaluation / Outcomes Successfully reached teens ages 12-18 and their families Highest teen turn-out at Escalante Community Center Teens repeatedly came back Attendance goals surpassed!
