Check In’s Recipe for Success
1. Interactive, Peer-Run Coping and Wellness Booths
These booths include an engaging activity, are run by participants’ peers whenever possible, and convey messages related to coping, positive life skills, and general wellness.
2. Community and/or Internal Resource Booths
Check In seeks to empower participants with ways they can live and cope better as well as provide knowledge of resources they can utilize in their communities.
In addition to things like free food and entertainment that create a social draw, Check In participants get credit for each booth they visit that helps them enter a drawing for prizes.
Check In offers two methods for implementation to allow it to fit within the parameters of a variety of environments.
