Demonstrating Active Strategies for Health and Education
Demonstrating Active Strategies for Health and Education, Inc. (DASHE) is an organization that was formed to help decrease the rates of childhood obesity of children and adolescents in the Baldwin community and its surrounding neighborhoods. Core services include healthy lifestyle education; mentoring and support for youth who may be struggling with academics; and peer relationship-building. DASHE is currently in the process of obtaining not-for-profit status.
DASHE aims to significantly reduce childhood obesity with free or low-cost and structured physical activity and healthy eating programs. DASHE will create an environment where children can learn about the importance of healthy eating and physical fitness. DASHE also strives to improve relationships and academic progress through mentoring and educational programming.
Reports have shown that mentoring in particular is a key component to building confidence at a young age and lowering rates of depression and anxiety in children. By addressing multiple factors contributing to overall determinants of health, DASHE would help guide participants to live healthier, more positive lives.
DASHE’s mission is to create sustainable relationships in the Baldwin community and the surrounding area, to help children and adolescents live healthier lives, gain confidence, and become leaders in their community.Our Vision
