    Ideas for Action is a free activity-based resource supporting leaders of all ages in the planning and implementation of activities that promote and enhance the health and well-being of students, school staff, and the broader community.

    This resource provides easy-to-use activities on the topics of healthy eating, mental health and physical activity that can be modified for elementary or secondary students and their leaders.

    The resource is meant to be a starting point and includes a variety of engaging activity ideas, information about existing programs and resources, tips for getting started, things to consider, and sources of support in Ontario. Each activity includes how-to instructions, supplies that are required, as well as ideas for getting more creative.

    This resource is also available in French as Idées pour passer à l’action.

    Ideas for Action is managed by Ophea and funded through contributions from Ophea’s Healthy Schools Certification funding partners which includes the Government of Ontario.
