Physical Activity for Youth

Community organizations can help promote children’s regular exercise by encouraging walking and biking to school, improving local schoolyards and ensuring that school playgrounds are open for use after the school day is done.

This factsheet is part of a series by the Institute that provides an overview of what academic researchers have learned about important issues for health and health care in low-income communities.

These accessible, two-page PDFs are designed to provide local organizations the best evidence of what works well to improve the health of residents. When new initiatives are being considered or expanding, the research overviews can be used to build support by laying out the facts in a clear, documented way.
