What Does a WellPATH Champion Do?
A WellPATH Champion is the WellPATH program’s eyes and ears (and arms and legs) at their school site. WellPATH Champions can be volunteers from any job type within the school. As a Champion, you will be asked to commit to at least one year in the role, wth two meetings per year and about 3-4 hours per month of effort. Every six months, we will come together to learn about what’s going on in the program, share ideas and thoughts, and discuss the feedback you have received from your colleagues and team members about WellPATH. We also recommend letting all supervisors know you have volunteered.
WellPATH Champions are encouraged to host events throughout the calendar year. Rewards will be distributed throughout the school year and over the summer months, as summer wellness services are included in the final count.
