The Center for Literacy, in partnership with the Chicago Department of Family & Support Services, developed the Summer Teen Nutrition Aide Program. Up to 400 teens are selected each summer to provide health and fitness activities for children throughout Chicago. Teens attend weekly interactive trainings to develop job skills and are supported by Team Leaders who monitor their performance. This initiative supports health/educational activities for the children while also providing paid work experience for the teens during the summer months.
