Empowering Youth to Lead the Way


Alexis Glick

CEO of GENYOUth Foundation

In the coming weeks we’ll see a new generation of youth graduate and move into higher education classrooms and the workforce.  At this nostalgic and celebratory time of year, how are we helping to ensure we’re building a healthy, high-achieving generation of youth to follow?  At GENYOUth, we view youth themselves as the solution to the current challenges of health and wellness in schools and communities – a role kids have always played in American life.
