Our Mission

Upower is a Seattle-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides fitness classes, and health and wellness education to underserved teens in King County, Washington.

Our vision is to empower teens through physical activity and wellness activities, inspiring them to take responsibility for their health and well-being, now and throughout their lives.

Mission Focus: Trauma-Informed Fitness for Teens Who Need It Most

We currently offer 23 classes a week serving incarcerated youth at King County Juvenile Detention Center, and 14 classes a week in Seattle and Highline Schools from North Seattle to Burien.

Our program focus is to provide our underserved teens with trauma-informed fitness classes that provide both a physical and social-emotional outlet. Coaches work with students to build pro-social connections and develop leadership skills that help them prepare for the future. Our unique approach to fitness and wellness offers teens an age-appropriate, therapeutic physical and emotional outlet. Through structured workouts and team-building games, dedicated coaching, an emphasis on building social-confidence, positive identity, discipline, future focus, and leadership skills, we help teens to cope with trauma and build toward their future.

Our goal is to energize our students to make exercise a part of their lives and that they understand the benefits of a healthy body and how it translates to a healthy mind.
