Alexis Glick

CEO of GENYOUth Foundation

In the coming weeks we’ll see a new generation of youth graduate and move into higher education classrooms and the workforce.  At this nostalgic and celebratory time of year, how are we helping to ensure we’re building a healthy, high-achieving generation of youth to follow?  At GENYOUth, we view youth themselves as the solution to the current challenges of health and wellness in schools and communities – a role kids have always played in American life.

American youth have unfailingly been involved in making organizational and civic changes on their own behalf. From lowering the U.S. voting age from 21 to 18 in 1971, to campaigns involving substance abuse, seat-belt awareness, stopping texting-while-driving, anti-bullying messages, and more.   In each of these cases, youth have helped lead the way.
