The j.k. livin foundation (the j’s for just, the k’s for keep) was started to help teenage kids lead active lives and make health choices so they can become great men and women. In keeping with the mindset and goals of j.k. livin, the foundation has set up after-school fitness and wellness programs in inner-city public schools where students might not otherwise have the opportunity to learn about the body and mind connection.
The fitness and wellness programs are voluntary, not for credit, free, fun, and teaching students to help themselves. The program is a positive place where kids can learn and improve responsibility, self esteem, accountability and commitment. Participating students will have a safe place to overcome their fears and improve their lives with fitness coaches and health experts.
Fitness: The fitness aspect of the program offers students a chance to learn the positive results of exercise and overall health. The Hami j.k. livin fitness and wellness program takes place in our Sound Mind, Sound Body fitness center on campus, but it’s not unlikely to see the students outside if the sun is shining. Our fitness experts teach the importance of exercise for health benefits while incorporating a fun atmosphere for a safe and encouraging community.
Wellness: Being healthy is not just about an active body, it’s also about an active mind. This component of our program encourages kids to gain an understanding of the mind and body connection. We believe the right mindset is important to make healthy choices and exercising the mind is just as important as exercising the body. Some activities include: Thank You Circle – a place to be grateful for what you have and what you’ve accomplished, Guest Speakers – some topics include overcoming obstacles, being a leader, and relaxation techniques, Positive incentives – such as sporting events and film screenings, and Journals – a place for students to keep a record of their progress and the journal includes inspirational quotes on topics such as courage, setting goals, and respect.
Service: We have incorporated a service aspect into the j.k. livin program to encourage our students to give back in their own communities and to empower them to take action. We believe a part of livin is about givin back and being thankful for what’s been given to you. Each semester, our students have the opportunity to attend a service day where they can make an n impact in their own community and make giving back a real part of their lives.
