Peru State College AmeriCorps
The Peru State AmeriCorps CHANCE Initiative provides an opportunity for Nebraska City elementary and middle school-aged children to attain the recommended number of minutes of physical activity per day. In order to accomplish this, Peru State AmeriCorps members have partnered with area schools and community members. In past years the CHANCE Initiative has seen an increase of between 3000 and 5000 steps per day in participants. The overarching goal of this endeavor is to curb the obesity epidemic in rural southeast Nebraska.
