Since its founding in 2003, HealthCorps (www.healthcorps.org), a national 501c3, has addressed health inequities in at-risk communities by educating and empowering teens – encouraging them to become change agents within their family, their school, and their neighborhood.
Believing that limited access to health education can lead to a lifetime of social, emotional, and physical challenges. HealthCorps strives to strengthen teens with innovative approaches to health and wellness, providing today’s youth with the tools to become more physically and mentally resilient through educational programming, leadership experience and service learning.
Teens Make Health Happen is HealthCorps’ latest program designed to create youth change makers and healthier communities in the process. HealthCorps is supported nationally by USANA Health Sciences. You can find health tips for teens from HealthCorps on the @teensmakehealthhappen Instagram channel
