Mizzen by Mott and BOKS (“Build our Kids’ Success”) are pleased to announce a strategic partnership aimed at equipping out-of-school time (OST) educators with free, high-quality curriculum centered around creating experiences for young people to become active and establish a lifelong commitment to physical and mental health and fitness.
Mizzen by Mott partners with the OST community to provide high-quality resources and experiences for youth serving professionals that spark curiosity, joy, and a love of learning for children and youth. Supported by the Mott Foundation, Mizzen is available at no cost to those who are empowering young learners everywhere!
BOKS is on a mission to make physical activity and play part of every child’s day. This free physical activity program for kids of all ages and abilities includes lesson plans, training and support needed to get kids moving for up to 45 minutes a day. BOKS also offers shorter movement breaks, activities, games and nutrition resources tailored to the needs of educators and caregivers.
"At BOKS, we believe every child deserves the opportunity to play which is why we are thrilled to be partnering with Mizzen. Together, we can work on providing free physical activity resources to educators and caregivers for any environment.” - Michela North, BOKS, Marketing and Communications Manager
The BOKS and Mizzen partnership will provide educators and caregivers with easy access to ready-to-use lesson plans, bringing the physical and cognitive benefits of the program to more communities and setting up young people for a thriving future.
Unique to this partnership is that out-of-school time professionals will be able to seamlessly access and integrate a BOKS lesson plan alongside the 1,400 plus resources found on the Mizzen platform.
“Mizzen by Mott is excited to partner with BOKS to share engaging learning resources for the out-of-school field. It was important for Mizzen to collaborate with a partner who shares the same vision of creating learning experiences that foster social and emotional development while creating healthy practices and lifestyle habits.” - Angelina Garner, Mizzen by Mott Vice President of Strategic Partnerships
