It's best to have a “give and take” presentation with your audience rather than
read the information from the brochure. Here are some presentation tips from
Healthy Children Healthy Futures!
Before the Presentation
• Review the Get Families Active After School brochure and its purpose to build advocacy to support out-ofschool time, physical activity programs and events (for example, school fairs, family activity nights, and afterschool and weekend physical activity events). Review the list of Moderate and Vigorous Physical Activity ideas in the brochure.
• Find at least one other interested parent who wants to help launch an after-school physical activity program or event at your school.
• Arrange a meeting with your principal to get support/share ideas with you.
• Talk to any or all parent networks at your school and get their “buy in.”
• Tie-in with an existing parent meeting to present information to parents on “getting active after school.”
• Bring copies of the Get Families Active After School brochure to hand out to parents.
• Organize any materials you plan to use in your presentation.
• Invite any guests that might help you with the presentation to your group (for example, the principal, health educator, school nurse, gym teacher, community members, or other parents).
At the start of the Presentation
• Explain to the parent group what you/the principal and others want to do: Launch an after-school physical activity program or event at your school.
• Distribute the Get Families Active After School brochure.
