Upower is a Seattle-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides fitness classes and wellness education to underserved teens in King County, Washington.
About This Cause
Upower's vision is to offer broad access to fitness and wellness, inspiring teens to take responsibility for their own health through active living and healthy eating.
We open doors to active and healthy living for underserved teens who have few, if any, opportunities to work out, play team sports, learn about nutrition, or enjoy the physical and emotional benefits of regular exercise.
Our approach is positive and trauma-informed. The environment is fun, safe, and structured. Our classes not only raise heartbeats and get teens moving, but also help them to:
- Build confidence
- Develop trust, pro-social connections, and social skills
- Gain situational-awareness and regulation of emotions
- Cultivate leadership skills to help prepare for the future
Our partners are community-based organizations that provide high-quality programs to the same demographic.
