Youth Diabetes Prevention & Wellness Toolkit

The Youth Diabetes Prevention and Wellness Toolkit was developed in order to bring the important information contained in the adult toolkit to a younger audience. For each of the four topic areas, we have created a factsheet overview of the topic  for the facilitator and activities and materials that can be shared with youth. This is not meant to be a formal curriculum, but rather a set tools that can be incorporated into youth programing. These activities can be used and adapted for multiple situations, depending on the group size, ages, and space available. They have been implemented with a wide range of school-aged children from upper elementary thru high school. Adjustments can be made depending on the group’s comprehension level.
