Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Children & Youth, Environment, Garden Clubs, Health, Youth Development Programs

Mission: To educate, activate, motivate and empower youth in the areas of academic achievement, health, fitness, nutrition and total wellness.

Results: Since January of 2011, we have impacted the lives of of over 25,000 students through our programs including: summer camps, workshops, back-to-school initiative, scholarship and garden project. We have taught thousands of children the principles of agriculture and healthy eating by teaching them to plant, nurture and harvest a garden. Each year we educate hundreds of students about fitness, nutrition and healthcare through our workshops and summer camp. Additionally, we support the less fortunate by donating thousands of school items such as book bags, lunch boxes and other supplies to underprivileged kids in homeless shelters for back to school. As of 4th quarter, 2018, we have awarded $30,000 in book scholarships to high school students for college. These students attend school in Atlanta Public School System or Dekalb County School System and are the best and brightest who want to major in STEAM, medicine or education. We are making an impact in the community! Live Healthy & Thrive Youth Foundation is saving and changing the lives of our youth, one child at a time, one family at a time, one community at a time. Thanks for your support.

The programs are designed not to just do or provide for children but to influence them to make healthy choices by getting them involved in the projects themselves. I believe this organization will have a lasting impact on the health of the children and families it serves.

Live Healthy and Thrive Youth Foundation plays an active role in the community. The programs that they have to help kids learn how to garden, teach children about nutrition and then end each year with a celebration and scholarship to help young adults go to college are a few reason to support their charity. I greatly appreciate the actions they take in the Atlanta community to make a difference.

I have participated in programming for Live Healthy and Thrive for the past year. This is an excellent organization that not only educates youth but also empowers them to live healthier lives. I was amazed at the programs they have had for children which have included dance/exercise, healthy cooking demonstrations, and health focused summer camps. I am so glad that I became involved with this organization because it is truly making a difference in children's lives.

This organization has a tradition of empowering, teaching and inspiring excellence in the children of our community. I've seen firsthand the positive impact LHTYF has on the lives of children we serve at each of our events. It is great feeling to continually witness the enthusiasm the children and their parents exhibit upon learning new & exciting ways to live healthier lives. Ensuring our children are empowered to excel in health and in life is paramount and this organization is dedicated to that and works tirelessly to change the face of our future one child at a time.

Since moving to Atlanta last year, I have actively been trying to find ways to get involved with the community. In speaking to the director and founder of this organization, her passion for helping our youth change their lives through healthy eating practices encouraged me to join immediately and continue to help spread her and my passion to others. I have enjoyed being apart of LHTYF and love seeing the impact it has made in the Atlanta community. I only hope for bigger and better outreach for this organization and pray that more youth and parents will get involved in being advocates for healthy eating practices and exercise. LHTYF is a great organization that fosters the development of our youth in the Atlanta community and I am thankful to be a part of it.

I have been a volunteer with this organization and have seen first hand the positive impact LHTYF has had in the Atlanta area with children who need to develop healthy lifestyle habits. It is very fulfilling to volunteer for an organization that values the future well being of our youth. Obesity and diabetes are real issues that this organization is trying to address to help our children.
