GENYOUth empowers students to create a healthier future for themselves and their peers. GENYOUth convenes a network of private and public partners to raise funds for youth wellness initiatives that bolster healthy, high-achieving students, schools and communities nationwide. We believe that all students are change-agents, who deserve the opportunity to identify and lead innovative solutions that positively impact nutrition, physical activity, and student success.
GENYOUth specializes in a range of national initiatives including the largest in-school wellness program (Fuel Up to Play 60) in partnership with National Dairy Council and the NFL, an innovative youth social entrepreneurship program (AdVenture Capital), youth and thought-leader engagement (Leadership Roundtables, Student Ambassador Summit, Town Halls), and widely circulated stakeholder-targeted publications. We bring together and enlist networks of private and public partners, convene dialogues, generate insights, build awareness, raise funds, and channel resources – all in the service of empowering youth to be stewards of their generation’s quest for healthy, fulfilled, and productive lives.
