Each year at GENYOUth, there’s more progress to share. Our annual gathering is your opportunity to celebrate with us, and help us keep the momentum going. This year’s Galabration will be a jubilee like never before!

Rise by lifting others

Students, educators, and a network of leaders in all fields inspire and evolve our organization every day through their ideas and action – and they know that when it comes to the well-being of American youth, there’s no time to waste.

This December’s event is a key part of our ongoing journey to empower youth to advance health and wellness in schools and communities across the country — whether it’s through Fuel Up to Play 60, AdVenture Capital, or one of GENYOUth’s landmark youth surveys or thought-leader publications.

2019 festivities will take place on the evening of Wednesday, December 4, at 6:30 p.m., at a truly grand venue:

New York City’s American Museum of Natural History, on Central Park West at 79th St. on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.

If you’ve attended our Galas previously, you know what an inspiring and worthwhile evening it is. This year, you’ll be surprised at how we’ve shaken things up for the evening’s program in a fun, informal format. It’s not a Gala, it’s a Galabration, which will include The Genny Awards a very special way to honor an elite cadre of GENYOUth heroes.

The Galabration: a whole new way of recognizing, celebrating, and championing our heroes.

We believe that all youth are heroic change-agents, and that they deserve the opportunity to reach their full potential by identifying and leading solutions that positively impact nutrition, physical activity, and student success across the nation.
