Brown + Healthy® K.I.D.S.
The Brown and Healthy K.I.D.S. (Kindness, Intelligence, Determination, Strength) initiative provides mental, physical, and emotional health and wellness programming for youth ages 8-17 who attend community centers, public + private school, and after school programs. Our Brown and Healthy K.I.D.S. program participants learn about health, and how to apply digital strategies and media principles to create positive stories that are strength based. Our participants then share those stories, and promote wellness among their peers, families, and communities. The goal is to ‘Redefine Every School Zone’ by creating an inclusive narrative of health using social media activities, that most youth already participate in daily, as vehicles for social change. Creating health-promoting memes and short videos that are easily and quickly shared are extremely effective ways to engage young people and shift the typical health and wellness narrative surrounding brown people locally, nationally, and internationally.
Program participants will also connect with health professionals of color, such as personal trainers, health educators, and wellness practitioners. Connecting youth to health professionals that look like them creates mentorship opportunities and serves as real-life examples that health and careers in health are inclusive of brown people.
