Go Healthy Month 2009

"Each September the Alliance for a Healthier Generation's empowerME Movement engages, educates and activates kids across the nation to motivate themselves, their families, and friends to eat better and move more.

Here are a few simple ways you and youth you know can get involved and make your community a healthier place.

5 Simple Ways Adult Allies Can Encourage Youth to Get Involved:

JOIN the Movement!
ONE:
Put an empowerME web banner on your site, blog or social networking page. If your organization has a Facebook group page, newsletter or website, send your network a message about Go Healthy Month.

INSPIRE with Your Story
TWO:
Encourage youth to share their own story at empowerme2b.org.

ORGANIZE or ATTEND a Go Healthy Month Event in Your Community
THREE:
Work in partnership with youth to organize a Youth-Hosted Forum or Recess ROCKS! Event download Playbooks for ideas and support.

FOUR:
Distribute empowerME materials at schools, community centers or events.

FIVE:
Add your local Go Healthy Month event to the empowerme2b.org event list so we can spread the news - contact us at empowerme@healthiergeneration.org to tell us the details."

See the empowerME website for ideas on how youth can get involved.
