Assess a School, District, or Out-of-School Time Site

Healthier Generation supports schools, districts, and out-of-school time sites in creating and sustaining healthier environments wherever kids live, learn, and play.

Our proven process comes to life in the Healthier Generation Action Center, an easy-to-use, online platform where participants build a wellness team, assess their school or site, track progress, and access resources and trainings.
