Secondary Schools Sector

The secondary school intervention partners with Georgia middle and high schools in multi-year partnership to improve healthy eating behaviors, physical activity behaviors and reduce sedentary behaviors in 12-18 year olds. This goal is accomplished through direct education, peer-to-peer engagement, policy, systems and environmental changes and social marketing of healthy key messages. The program is based on HealthMPowers evidence based elementary program.  Based on research of the impact of peer-to-peer engagement among youth, this intervention also engages student advocates in promoting healthy choices to their peers.
