Childhood obesity and illiteracy are some of the greatest challenges facing young people in Texas. According to a 2006 study by the Texas Health Institute, more than one in three children in Texas are overweight or obese, and in 2009, 72% of Texas fourth graders read below a proficient level. America SCORES Dallas hosts a holistic after-school program that encourages literacy, active lifestyles, and healthy eating habits with positive activities every day after school.
America SCORES students convene each weekday after school for 90 minutes of structured activities and community-service projects, such as hosting a recycling workshop and trash pick-ups. The program provides healthy snacks and a safe and engaging environment for students at four schoolsmost of whom live at or below the poverty thresholdand ensures that each student logs about 270 minutes of physical activity and 180 minutes of reading and writing each week. Three days a week are dedicated to playing soccer and attending nutrition classes, and students spend the other two days of the week participating in poetry and creative-writing workshops. America SCORES has helped to produce a variety of positive results in its students' overall health, including a decrease in body-mass index and an improvement in their ability to run long distances. The program is provided at no cost to the participants' families, and one of the expenses of providing the America SCORES program is serving healthy snacks to fuel physical and mental activity. It costs $10 to provide healthy snacks for one student in the program for one semester.
