Imagine a future where all children are nourished and active.

Did you know that hundreds of thousands of children across the state of Georgia face overwhelming obstacles to their academic and personal success due to inequities that contribute to poor nutrition, limited opportunities for physical activity, and a lack of community resources? At HealthMPowers we believe in empowering potential and that when we center youth voice, we can catalyze a healthier future for the next generation. We serve more than 300,000 children in under-resourced communities across the state of Georgia. Our work is focused on making sure kids can eat healthy, nutritious foods and engage in regular physical activity. 

The Truth Is Startling:

At HealthMPowers, we work every day to reduce the barriers to good health facing that kids and their families face. Working alongside teachers, community members, educators, and youth leaders, our health educators provide nutrition and physical activity programs, resources, and training that tackle the preventable causes of health inequities—inadequate/poor nutrition and lack of physical activity. Health should never be a barrier to a child realizing their full potential and living out their dreams.  

Highlights of what your generous investment will support: 

  • The new HealthMPowers Youth Advisory Board provides an opportunity for members in grades 9-12 to develop leadership skills, gain networking opportunities, and earn community service hours while influencing our programs to help keep youth eating, moving, and thinking in healthy ways. 
  • The Girls Empowering Movement (GEM) program places girls in the center of this one-of-a-kind effort to increase physical activity and the fitness levels of Georgia’s middle school girls. GEM, designed by girls for girls, debuted in the summer of 2021 with the goal to motivate 200,000 girls to get moving and improve their mental and emotional health. 
  • Student Health Advocates drive healthy behaviors in their schools and communities by hosting events, creating messaging, and challenging peers to lead healthier lifestyles. Thanks to Student Health Advocates, children and youth all over Georgia are moving more and eating more nutritious foods.   
Your investment in Georgia’s kids supports programs that provide opportunities for youth to lead the charge to better health for themselves and their communities.
