What Can We Do To Help?

We have established the “Book Fund” for local Ventura County Students graduating High School and entering College. We have three $500 Scholarships available. Our requirement to be considered is to submit a 500 word Essay “Why Education Is Important To Me”. If you are a Ventura County High School Student contact your Career Counselor for more information on how to apply.

Facts About Childhood Obesity 

Children and adolescents who are obese are likely to be obese as adults and are therefore more at risk for adult health problems such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, several types of cancer, and osteoarthritis. Data from 2015-2016 show that nearly 1 in 5 school age children and young people (6 to 19 years) in the United States has obesity. [1]

More than 2 in 3 adults (70.2 percent) were considered to be overweight or have obesity. [2]
