Healthy Eating

With childhood obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure on the rise, showing young people how to exercise, stay fit and eat healthy – all while having fun – is a passion for us.

We hold interactive cooking seminars geared toward youth that enable them to learn about meal preparation, healthy eating, food groups and kitchen safety to address issues of nutritional health and childhood obesity which affect thousands annually.

Healthy Aquatics Swimming Program

Drowning is a leading cause of death in youth. Swimming lessons reduce the risk of drowning by 88%. In 2016, we partnered with the USA Swimming Foundation and DeKalb Aquatics to facilitate our program, affording over 300 youth the opportunity to learn how to swim. Learning to swim is not just fun way to get fit, it’s a life skill. In the fall of 2017, we added a lifeguard certification program.

Healthy Hearts for Hip Hop

Joining forces with schools and communities, we make high-energy cardio programs engaging and enjoyable through the use of hip-hop. We stress the importance of being active and having fun.

Healthy Thinking

Our goal is to develop socially responsible youth and young adults through seminars and media campaigns that focus on on social issues, awareness and prevention.

Health Fairs

We partner with healthcare organizations to educate underserved youth and families on the importance of preventive healthcare by providing educational materials and free services such as vision testing and dental screenings.

“We express the importance of getting and staying fit. We teach kids how to swim and be safe in the water.”
– Chris “Ludacris” Bridges
