As an extension of our national Health & Safety platform, YWCA USA has adopted RunJumpThrow (RJT) as a model program. RJT, a program of USA Track and Field (USATF), is a hands-on curriculum designed to introduce children to basic skills of running, jumping and throwing — skills that are essential to physical literacy and building life-long habits of and access to physical activity. This partnership helps YWCA USA positively impact the lives of children, especially those who are traditionally underserved, have the least access to structured and unstructured play, and are likely to have inequitable health outcomes. As a model program, YWCA USA has partnered with USATF to customize a RJT curriculum that specifically focuses on how RJT aligns with one of our national outcomes: to improve the health of women and girls of color.
