ACTiV8 is a unique community collaboration made up of numerous non-profits, businesses, and schools that provide Ecker Hill Middle School, South Summit Middle School, Park City Day Middle School, Treasure Mountain Junior High, and homeschooled students with engaging after-school activities on early release days. Because teen/tween-agers have different needs and wants than their younger, elementary school friends and relatives, all ACTiV8 offerings were developed through brainstorming sessions with students. Multiple activities are offered each month with students having the option to choose one.
ACTiV8 focuses on developing eight lifestyle qualities: Accountability, Confidence, Equality, Inspiration, Kindness, Leadership, Respect, and Versatility. Students are given a community passport after their first session. Each student is responsible for obtaining signatures from instructors after each activity. Upon completing eight activities, one of which must include CPR, students receive a Park City ACTiV8 Award. The CPR requirement (Accountability) allows students to earn money as babysitters or from other organizations around town.
