Physical Literacy Chatham-Kent is a collaborative project funded by an Ontario Trillium Foundation Grow Grant to build on and improve physical literacy for children and youth in Chatham-Kent. Physical Literacy Chatham-Kent will build capacity through training of over 800 community leaders to provide high quality physical literacy experiences and programming for children and youth 0 to 12 years of age though the early years, education, health, recreation, and sport sectors. Through various communication channels, Physical Literacy Chatham-Kent will highlight the importance of physical literacy, and how physically literate children and youth have a lot more fun being physically active, and physically active children and youth get higher grades in school, have better social skills, and are happier and more confident.
