StrongerU Senior Fitness 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 Therapeutic Recreation, Health and Physical Education, Kinesiology, Gerontology, and more, with senior-serving organizations such as retirement communities and senior centres. Two students will be selected from the applicant pool to receive free access to the StrongerU Senior Fitness Online Instructor Course and a one year subscription to the StrongerU Senior Fitness Series which provides instructors with 30 minutes of new StrongerU Senior Fitness class content each month. In exchange, the successful applicants will volunteer their time teaching the 30-minute StrongerU Fitness Program weekly at Blue Sky Lodge in Lethbridge, AB from January to the end of June 2021. Blue Sky Lodge is an independent seniors’ residence. You can learn more about Blue Sky Lodge by visiting their website here.
