For more than a decade, Healthier Generation has worked with schools, youth-serving organizations, businesses, and communities to empower kids to develop lifelong healthy habits by ensuring the environments that surround them provide and promote good health. Through the Kohl’s Healthy at Home initiative, Healthier Generation is also helping families to prioritize healthy living at home. Driven by the passion that all young people deserve a chance to live healthier lives, their work has impacted up to 28 million kids across the country.

Gateway to the Great Outdoors (GGO) partners with low-income public schools (currently in Chicago, IL and St. Louis, MO) to provide extensive environmental, outdoor, and STEAM education. GGO’s curriculum combines hands-on, inquiry-based classroom STEAM instruction, and nature-based outings & overnight trips, with year-round mentorship provided by university students. GGO partners directly with the classroom science teachers to assure that the curriculum augments traditional classroom learning.
