Wellness for APS

APS Wellness Program

The APS Wellness program was established in 1986 by Arlington Employee Assistance Program for APS employees. The mission of Arlington EAP is to provide free, confidential support to; 1) assist employees with preventing or resolving personal, family and workplace concerns that may affect emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being or job performance; 2) help the organizations create/sustain a culture of health to enhance quality of life as well as promote optimal engagement, personal well-being and professional excellence.

The Wellness program helps achieve the goals that support our mission.  The EAP sponsors several successful employee wellness initiatives including “Health for the Holidays”, Healthy Habits Challenges,  and the Bowling Tournaments in the fall & winter.

Wellness Ambassadors

To ensure system-wide wellness initiatives consistent with varied employee interests the EAP supports a wellness ambassador program.  Each site administrator selects a Wellness Ambassador to lead their commitment to improving their health climate, build wellness awareness and boost employee engagement.  Through consistent education and targeted wellness programs, EAP, in collaboration with our health vendors, promotes the professional, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being of Arlington Public School employees.

The EAP collaborates with ACG wellness coordinators and HealthSmart to support ACG wellness initiatives.
