About the Project
Read Press Release
CATCH Global Foundation is grateful to the Michigan Health Endowment Fund for supporting the expansion of the evidence-based CATCH Program throughout Michigan over the next two years. Building on our successful pilot last school year, CATCH is aiming to provide up to 100 Michigan elementary and middle schools with the resources, training and support to build and sustain healthy school environments and whole child programming in school year 2021-22.

All K-8 public schools in the state are eligible to participate, and resources will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.

To accommodate individual schools’ readiness levels, CATCH is offering three options for engaging with the CATCH Program this school year: Basic, Basic Plus, and the Whole Child Guided Journey (see below for details about each level).

As an added bonus, all schools that engage with CATCH will receive a free one-year membership to SHAPE Michigan for one PE teacher, health teacher, or physical activity leader.


Schools with a free-and-reduced lunch rate (FRL) of at least 50% are eligible for the free trainings offered as part of the pilot program through December 31, 2021.
