Change Club

  • Saturday, January 1, 2022, 12:00 PM - Saturday, December 31@ 12:00 PM

The Change Club project has relaunched and offers Hounsfield, Carthage, and Watertown residents an opportunity to earn money, receive funds for a community project, and potentially improve their health! We have relaunched with new communities, increased compensation, and fewer evaluation activities. 

A Change Club is a small group of community residents who will work together to create positive health changes within their community. Change Clubs will identify and implement a project that makes it easier to make the healthy choice the easy choice. Examples of projects may include: revitalizing a walking trail, creating or supporting a mobile farmers’ market or community garden, improving school snacks, etc. 

Hounsfield, Carthage, and Watertown Change Clubs will receive up to $5,000 in funding to complete their project! 

Hounsfield, Carthage, and Watertown residents are needed to serve as Change Club Members! 

Not interested in being a Change Club Member? Hounsfield, Carthage, and Watertown residents are also needed to help us evaluate the project by participating in the evaluation activities described below. 

Evaluation activities include 1) an online survey, 2) an online food diary, and 3) 7 days of tracking and re- porting your daily activity (e.g., steps). In the online survey, we will ask that you provide body measurements including height, weight and waist circumference. You will be asked to provide information now (baseline), in approximately 12 months, 24 months, and 36 months. You will be compensated $75 gift card or cash (via the Zelle app) for each timepoint you complete all evaluation activities. 

This information will be used to evaluate the projects. Their hope is to inform stronger projects for promoting health. 

Hounsfield, Carthage, and Watertown residents can join the Change Club Project by visiting today. Contact April Bennett for more information or browse the Change Club website to find out more about creating healthy communities together.
