EMPOWERING STUDENTS AND FAMILIES, SUPPORTING EDUCATORS AND CONNECTING VOLUNTEERS
The Future Well Kids program teaches kids ages 10-13 about chronic diseases – also called noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) – and how they can stay healthy and reduce their risk of developing chronic diseases later in life. Through engaging standards-aligned curriculum, students learn about chronic diseases, like Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, and how to reduce their risk of developing these diseases through physical health, nutrition and healthy lifestyle education.
In partnership with schools and community organizations from around the world, we’re on a mission to equitably engage and empower students and families of all backgrounds regardless of learning environment.
In addition to establishing better habits, students also learn about healthy lifestyle topics and other Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) skills through the program.
Our program resources are helping to create healthier students and communities by redefining the importance of health and wellness in students’ success and raising awareness of NCDs.
