Our mission is simple: We help youth sweat for good. 

By helping Generation Next get active to make change, we empower kids – as partners and leaders – in creating a better world, starting with themselves.

Our formula has been confirmed by Cone Communications as unique: no other nonprofit in the country combines getting active with giving back at the meta-level to build a national youth culture of active compassion so kids can effect change, making themselves stronger and healthier in the process.

Getting active because physical activity reverses the health and wellness crisis while building strong foundations for lifelong learning and health.

Giving back because empathy is key to leadership, team building and a host of other positive behaviors that make for healthier, happier lives.


Youth apply for our support here. Once accepted, we provide key essentials at no charge: a digital platform and tech tools, hands on help and expertise from Positive Tracks staff and peer coaches, event insurance, equipment, and even matching dollars, if fundraising is a goal.


By the end of 2017, 52,000+ youth will turn 280,000+ miles of athletic activity into $9,000,000+ for organizations that shape their communities and world. We rally young people, foundations, philanthropists and corporations with an inclusive, mobilized call to action: Run. Jump. Get Into The Game. Contact us to get involved.
