Together Let's Prepare Kids to Lead Healthy, Active Lives

We are thankful for all of the health and physical educators around the country who are committed to putting all children on the path to health and physical literacy through effective health and physical education programs.

It is SHAPE America's vision that all children are prepared to lead healthy, physically active lives. We believe that through effective teaching, health and physical educators can help students develop the ability and confidence to be physically active and make healthy choices. As educators, our guidance can also help foster their desire to maintain an active and healthy lifestyle in the years to come.

Membership, programs and services cover less than 50% of SHAPE America's annual budget. Only through private donations can SHAPE America fulfill all aspects of our mission.

This includes a wide variety of support for health and physical educators – whether it’s providing professional development opportunities for P-12 educators, college/university faculty, coaching educators and researchers, serving as a voice to make a positive impact on school health and physical education through state and national advocacy efforts, or developing valuable resources and tools to help teachers guide their students towards a more healthy and fit lifestyle.

Together, let’s make this vision a reality, where healthy is the norm.
