Community Programs

The Kinesiology Department at San Francisco State University offers a variety of community programs for SF State students and members of the community.

Community Programs

 

SF State Kinesiology provides a variety of community based adapted physical activity programs to individuals with disabilities in the local community. The clinics are family-oriented programs offered in a community-based setting and are designed to be accessible and affordable for all. They offer a wide range of physical activities that emphasize mobility and function in order to maximize independence and quality of life.

 

At SF State, we are all about moving the world forward. While summer may be a time to take a break from school, it doesn't have to be a break from learning. We are proud to continue to offer two summer camps to create a full day experience for children. We invite you to explore our morning Gator Start program and our afternoon Gator Youth Sports Summer Camp to make summer fun (and educational) for your child. Registration remain available throughout the duration of the summer camps.

 

100 Citizens is a FREE exercise program provided to San Francisco’s communities by kinesiology student volunteers. The program utilizes our student’s knowledge gained from their kinesiology coursework to provide our citizens with quality exercise from developing professionals. This program aims to help citizens in underserved communities meet or exceed the CDC’s minimum recommendation for physical activity, 150 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity per week. While students can give back to their communities they can practice other practical skills such as public speaking, teaching movement, and communication.

 

Exercise is Medicine (EIM) on Campus at SF State aims to increase awareness about the holistic benefits (cognitive, emotional, physical) of physical activity to the student body. The organization is committed to providing educational information and events that include non-invasive physical composition assessments, and campus/community resources to begin/remain physically active. Additionally the organization stands to promote healthy behavior changes in students and recognize behaviors that lead to chronic diseases.
