Health & Wellness

Community outreach through health and wellness programming brings vital messaging about healthy life choices into schools, inspiring students, teachers and families to embrace positive behaviors around dental health, fitness, nutrition, mental health and more. Specific subjects related to health and wellness vary significantly, but NTC has implemented programs on:

Government agencies, foundations, hospitals and insurance companies form lasting, inspiring connections to their communities through customized K-12 programs. In addition to the positive benefits of greater health throughout the community, NTC’s health and wellness campaigns allow healthcare providers, insurers and other organizations to grow their customer base through positive recognition.

Educational Points

Every NTC program is built around four educational points and supported by the curriculum connected to those points. The points vary to appropriately connect to different grade bands in the K-12 setting and align with state and national education standards, as well as provide specificity to each client’s message. As your industry priorities evolve, the flexibility of the educational point library allows your NTC program to share distinct information with your school communities.

Featured Programs

Oral Health

NTC’s oral health program teaches students in pre-kindergarten through third grade the importance of good oral health habits. Tooth decay is the most common chronic childhood disease, and more than half of the nation’s third graders have had at least one cavity. To help combat the prevalence of tooth decay among students, our program reaches thousands of children each year. During the interactive in-person performance or online show, memorable characters explain good oral health care techniques, good and bad foods for the teeth, and why it is important to visit the dentist. Participating schools are also provided with curriculum and dental health supplies for every child. This is a multi-state national program.

Mental Health

The mental health of students can affect their education, social life, and emotional well-being. That’s why NTC has developed easy-to-implement programs that support the hard work educators and families are doing to support students everywhere. Project Mindset is a program that includes a live performance and supporting educational journal aimed at 3rd–5th grade students. Its goal is to give students a framework for incorporating healthy mental behaviors into their daily routine. Mental Might helps students identify behaviors that support their mental health, providing them with tools for managing emotions and everyday stress and is a livestream and video program.

Nutrition

Schools are an important environment for modeling and supporting healthy eating. School-age children consume a substantial portion of their daily food needs within the school and afterschool setting. All’s Well that Eats Well is a school-based program for students and educators about how to make healthy food choices and become more physically active. Including a live kick-off performance, thorough digital learning materials and a graphic novel, All’s Well… teaches school communities about how their food is grown, how it supports healthy growth and development, and how to have lifelong healthy eating habits.

Digital Wellbeing

Digital wellbeing is the pursuit of an intentional and healthy relationship with technology, both in the workplace and in personal life. It can also be used to describe the impact of technologies and digital services on people’s mental, physical, social and emotional health. As screen time has grown in both necessity and habit for students, so has societal pressure, scams and other malicious activity. NTC’s digital wellbeing programs are centered on digital citizenship, cyber security and mental health. Cyber Vibes equips students with knowledge and skills that will help them navigate the digital world with confidence, focusing in particular on respectful online behavior. Cyber Secure teaches students how to protect themselves against cyber predators, cyber bullying and identity theft.

Classroom Community Health

The Classroom Community Health Pack is a livestream series that supports social emotional learning and health and wellness in the classroom. Easy to implement by the educator and easy to provide by a sponsor, this five-part series focuses on a topic and provides supporting educational materials for its further understanding week by week. Each episode begins and ends with sponsor branding and messaging.
