Our efforts are made possible by our collaborative partner, Champions for Change.

Champions for Change has implemented Youth Engagement projects with 120 high school aged participants in LA County. These youth are dedicated to educating their peers on the importance of nutrition and physical activity, and advancing policies and environmental change in low-income communities. Through these youth, a minimum of 4,500 individuals are reached through nutrition education, physical activity promotion and implemented policies related to obesity prevention.
