What is the EmpowerMe Movement?

EmpowerME is a “by kids for kids” movement that’s inspiring all kids to make healthy behavior changes and to become advocates and leaders for healthy eating and physical activity. Through empowerME, healthy lifestyles become “cool” for tweens and teens. In addition to working to engage 2 million kids in this movement by 2010, we’re encouraging kids to use their own voices to motivate each other, get educated and get activated. As an adult ally you can empower young people to take charge of their health by eating right and getting physically active.
