About Us

Founded in 2005 by the American Heart Association and the Clinton Foundation, the Alliance for a Healthier Generation pursues a mission of ensuring that all kids grow up in places that help them lead healthy lives – especially children disproportionately affected by poor health. We accomplish this by promoting healthier habits rooted in improved nutrition and greater physical activity, as well as strengthened social and emotional learning and development. In just 13 years, Healthier Generation has made great strides in fighting our nation’s obesity epidemic by taking the battle to where children spend the majority of their waking hours. Children impacted by our work are equipped for long-term success through better health, more energy and engagement in the classroom, and a lifelong approach to wellness.

This is an exciting time to join Healthier Generation as its brand and programmatic work rapidly evolve to address a more comprehensive and holistic approach to children’s health. In addition to utilizing an evidenced based approach to systems change in thousands of schools, businesses and communities nationwide – the organization is advancing new strategies to improve individual and family health and ensure a generation of thriving kids.
