This study provides a novel translational approach that works with pre-existing afterschool programs and targets staff as instrumental for facilitating changes in critical social mechanisms within the setting for sustained increases in the daily physical activity of underserved adolescents. This research is important for increasing the potential impact of school- and afterschool- based health interventions. Increasing and sustaining adolescents’ physical activity has significant public health and economic implications for weight control, reducing chronic disease, and increasing longevity and quality of life, especially among an underserved population of youth who are at greatest risk for obesity and related diseases.
