SWITCH is an evidence-based, school wellness initiative designed to help schools promote healthy lifestyles for youth. Through SWITCH, students learn to “switch what they do, view and chew,” and schools learn how to plan, build and evaluate school wellness programming. Support from extension councils can directly support local schools in running SWITCH, said Rachel Sweeney, 4-H SWITCH program coordinator with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach.
