 BACKGROUND:

GENYOUth is a non-profit foundation on a mission to inspire and educate youth to improve their nutrition and increase physical activity.  GENYOUth was founded through a public-private partnership involving the dairy farmer-funded National Dairy Council (NDC) and the National Football League (NFL).

GENYOUth is collaborating with students, schools, communities, business partners and thought leaders to build a platform with the flexibility and energy to make a lasting difference in children’s lives. When students are given a voice, change can happen.

Because of Fuel Up to Play 60, 14 million kids have greater access to healthier, nutritious foods and are more physically active. We are able to help today’s youth become tomorrow’s leaders because of the support of sponsors like the National Dairy Council, the National Football League, Quaker, SAP and many more. 

Stay tuned to Gen YOUth’s social media channels (TwitterFacebook and Instagram) for updates and how to stay involved.
