StrongerU Student Sponsorship Program
"If you want something you've never had, you must be willing to do something you've never done."
- Thomas Jefferson
The StrongerU Senior Fitness Student Sponsorship Program pairs students from programs such as Health and Physical Education, Kinesiology, Gerontology, Therapeutic Recreation, and more, with senior-serving organizations such as senior centers and retirement communities.
Two students will be selected from the applicant pool to receive free access to the StrongerU Senior Fitness Online Instructor Course ($250 value) and a one year subscription ($240 value) to the StrongerU Senior Fitness Series which provides instructors with 30 minutes of new StrongerU class content each month. In exchange, the successful applicants will volunteer their time and gain experience by teaching a weekly 30-minute class at the host organization from July to December 2021.
Complete the online StrongerU Senior Fitness Instructor Course. Typically takes between 8-12 hours. The course is completed at your own pace, but must be completed by March 31st 2021.
Learn your first 30-minutes of StrongerU Senior Fitness content between April 1st and June 23rd.
Team-teach weekly with the other sponsorship recipient weekly at the host organization from July to December 2021 (approximately 24- thirty minute classes, classes may be taught virtually).
