Upower is a Seattle-based nonprofit (501c3) that provides no-cost fitness, health, and wellness classes to underserved teens in King County. Our vision is to provide broad access to quality programs that address current challenges in funding and access to health and wellness programs for teens in our community.
The Movemeant Grant:
In Fall 2015, Upower is expanding to the Tukwila school district to implement a pilot program of Upower classes for high school girls that are unable to complete their physical education credit due to health, family and various other reasons that prevent them from taking gym classes. Funds will be used to purchase exercise equipment and to bring in nutritional and body image guest speakers.
