Expand Your Impact Through Collective Action

Schools across the country are looking for programs, equipment, and training to provide outstanding physical education and physical activity. By becoming an Active Schools partner organization, you’ll be connected with teachers, administrators and parents who want to increase physical activity in their schools.

Collective action benefits your organization’s mission:

  • Share your expertise
  • Reach more schools
  • Collaborate with like-minded organizations
  • Engage your network in creating positive change

You have the knowledge and the experience to change the way schools prioritize and provide physical education and physical activity. Together, we can amplify your influence and your impact.

What The Active Schools Movement Means for You

You have the message. You have programs, equipment and training. You have a voice that should be heard. You have the ability to activate your network. Being an Active Schools Champion helps you raise your voice even more, sending your message to others.

When you join the Movement, you contribute your organization’s strengths to the cause of active schools and active kids. You become part of a network like-minded organizations from whom you can learn, teach, and collaborate.

Revolutionize How Schools Incorporate Physical Activity

The goal of Active Schools is to help K-12 schools provide exceptional and equitable physical activity programming for their students. In doing this, we aim for nothing less than prioritizing physical education and physical activity in our nation’s schools.

Your resources help schools create new ways of moving and new ideas of learning. This will help make physical activity part of everyday life. This means:

Better Scores

Physical activity is a key part of academic success. Your programs help students- and their schools- thrive.

Healthier Students

We know there is a public health crisis. You can be at the national frontlines of turning that tide.

More Attention

The more we recognize these benefits, the more attention will be paid to organizations like yours.

More Opportunities

Demonstrating clear success helps you with fundraising and can put you into more and more schools.

“Movement and exercise are more than activities at Red Hawk Elementary. They are foundational elements of the school culture. We built physical activity into our plan from day one. Using a rotating daily ‘movement calendar,’ students gain 40 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity on a daily basis, in addition to scheduled PE class and recess.”
