The Recreation Prescription Project is a partnership between Vancouver Island University (VIU), the City of Nanaimo Parks and Recreation, Division of Family Practice, and the Nanaimo Ladysmith School District to introduce Grade 5 students to more active and healthy lifestyles. The 16-week recreation program is offered in three elementary schools to over 100 students.

Check out the video to see how the project is supporting youth in our community.
