SULLIVAN 180 PROGRAM:

Empowering a Healthier Generation
Healthier Generation – Preparation Phase

The purpose of the Empowering a Healthier Generation Program is to engage Sullivan County School Districts in promoting health and wellness among students, staff, parents and their communities. As Sullivan County struggles at the bottom of the county health rankings each year, our children and youth continue to pay the price with poor health outcomes.

The goal of Empowering a Healthier Generation is to create a grassroots movement that will change policy and environments; while demonstrating that individuals and families have an important role to play in building a culture of health for themselves and the next generation.

All Sullivan County schools will be invited to submit an application to participate in the Empowering a Healthier Generation Program – Preparation Phase. The preparation phase takes place over the course of three school semesters from Jan. 2021 – June 2022; and will establish a working relationship between the schools, the Healthier Generation Advisors, the Healthier Generation Committees and Sullivan 180.
