Recreation NL signs new 3-year agreement with ParticipACTION and Coca-Cola Canada
Recreation NL would like to announce that we have just signed a new 3-year agreement with ParticipACTION and Coca-Colato coordinate the ParticipACTION Teen Challenge. Recreation NL has been the provincial coordinator for this program for the past 7 years and has been helping to get teens 13 – 19 engaged in physical activity throughout the province. The program formerly known as Sogo Active, has allowed Recreation NL to assist with breaking down the barriers that prevent teens from getting active and support them with teen physical activity grants to expand current physical activity programs or create new programs and events.
Recreation NL currently has about 200 community organizations involved in the program including groups such as recreation commissions and departments, community youth networks, church groups, girl guide groups, sport groups, allied youth groups, etc. We have also been able to provide approximately $75,000.00 worth of teen physical activity grant funding over the past few years to help teens get active!
