UC CalFresh had the opportunity to partner with the Teaching Fellows Foundation and provide their after school program staff in Madera with a 2-hour training in the CATCH curriculum. 24 leads were trained with a potential reach of over 2,000 students. This training provided an overview of CATCH and the activity box, how it is implemented, and class management techniques. Trainees also participated in several fun CATCH games. They were able to bust out their dance moves during the Aerobic Rhythms game, practice their throwing skills using a bean bag during the Frogs on the Lilly Pad game, and chase each others' tails using a scarf during the Dragon's Tail game.
