Moving Families Initiative Declares June 20 National Get Involved With an Extracurricular Activity Organization Day


Moving Families Initiative®, an international plan focusing on serving,
protecting and meeting the needs of parents relocating with children
ages 19 and under, has announced the first-ever National Get Involved
With an Extracurricular Activity Organization Day, taking place June 20.

The day was created to enhance awareness, education and connectivity for
extracurricular activity organizations nationwide. These organizations
provide programs to build character and enhance life skills and values
for children. One of the goals of the Moving Families Initiative is to
assist parents moving or relocating, making the move less stressful for
their entire family. Specifically, Moving Families Initiative focuses on
assisting children with the physical and emotional challenges of
changing neighborhoods, schools and friends. Moving Families Initiative
is facilitated by World Class Coaches.

"We're excited about the first National Get Involved With an
Extracurricular Activity Organization Day," said Johnnie Johnson, former
NFL All Pro Los Angeles Ram and CEO of World Class Coaches. "Children's
participation in extracurricular activities not only strengthens
character but also allows for a safe environment where they can make new
friends in a new location."

The overall aim in serving the Initiative's parents and children when
they move or relocate is to provide them access to:

  • High-quality education
  • Children's extracurricular activities
  • Affordable housing
  • Economic opportunities

In October, Moving Families Initiative joined forces with HSF Affiliates
and through its Home Connections℠ real estate services platform, which
offers parents a one-stop access point for the plan's legion of service
providers, programs and services.

"We are continually impressed with the level of community involvement
and encouragement the Moving Families Initiative delivers to relocating
families," said Gino Blefari, CEO of HSF Affiliates. "This day will
place proper focus on the importance of extracurricular activities for
relocating children across the country who are adjusting to an
unfamiliar environment."

As part of the nationwide celebration, Moving Families Initiative
encouraged parents to work with children and get them involved.
Additionally, Moving Families Initiative recommended that parents join
an extracurricular activity of their choice for the day by volunteering
their time, connecting someone they know to the organization or making a
small donation to the organization of their choice. The suggestions are
also directed at teachers, coaches, school counselors and extended
family members. "For the kids, we're not concerned about which activity
is chosen as long as they get involved and have fun," Johnson said. "It
could be Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, playing in the band, singing, dancing,
youth sports – you name it."

After its inaugural recognition, National Get Involved With an
Extracurricular Activity Organization Day will be celebrated during the
entire month of June each year.
