Promoting Fit & Healthy Lifestyles among Disadvantaged Youth

Promoting Fit & Healthy Lifestyles among Disadvantaged Youth

We are very fortunate to have been partnering with Marjorie Desir and her dedicated colleagues at the Madison Square Boys & Girls Club in New York City for several years.     

The Madison Square Boys & Girls Club’s mission is to save and enhance the lives of New York City boys and girls who by reason of economic or social factors are most in need of services. 

Madison’s Clubhouses provide life-changing services to young people in under-resourced communities in Brooklyn and the Bronx.  

Their three priority outcomes involve programs promoting academic success, good character and citizenship, and healthy lifestyles. 

Madison’s Healthy Lifestyles programs encourage youth to adopt a healthy diet, practice positive lifestyle choices and make a lifelong commitment to fitness. 

One of the Healthy Lifestyle programs they provide is the evidence-based SPORT Prevention Plus Wellness program which is proven to prevent substance use while promoting fitness, healthy nutrition and positive identities of youth. 

Marjorie and her team of committed youth specialists are changing lives for the better every day in New York City. 

It is a great thrill for us to have the opportunity to partner with the Madison Square Boys & Girls Club to promote fit, healthy and drug-free youth lifestyles.
