After-School Activities for Low-Income Urban Youth
Developing a curriculum that helps improve healthy eating habits in New York City.
Advanced Cooking Education (ACE) is a program that offers hands-on activities that reinforce children’s regular academic programs. This project connected Cornell undergraduate students with middle schools on the Upper West Side to develop ACE curriculum in after-school activities. While in New York City, the students observed the school environment and collected qualitative data about barriers and facilitators to healthy eating, which will serve to enhance the ACE program curriculum.
