Committed to Improving the Health of Georgia Girls

With support from our funding partners, Girls Empowering Movement is on the front lines, leading the charge to improve the physical health of middle school girls, implement a preventative mental health approach, and build the next generation of women leaders.

Atlanta Falcons Youth Foundation

Honoring The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation’s core values of Give Back to Others and Include Everyone, The Atlanta Falcons Youth Foundation has committed $4.1M to the five-year, $5.8M Girls Empowering Movement program initiative. This is the first-ever large-scale grant initiative to support health and fitness programming designed by girls, for girls to build connections, elevate youth voice and support the girls’ ideas.


We are grateful for the generous financial support from our funding partners.

GEM is taking a different approach to addressing the disparities in girls’ health and fitness levels. Unlike other programs, GEM empowers girls to create physical activity and wellness programming that meets their needs. As GEM Ambassadors, girls gain leadership skills, develop healthy habits, and improve mental health resilience.

Through strong partnerships and unique programming, GEM is empowering girls to create physical activity programs, improve fitness levels, promote long term health, and enhance their emotional well-being. Your support today will help us deliver innovative youth-led programming to girls across Georgia.
