EVERY BODY IS #MEANTTOMOVE
At Movemeant Foundation, we empower girls and women by providing them with resources, opportunities and experiences to use physical movement as a tool to build confidence and self-worth.
We’re in the midst of an epidemic. Our young women are bombarded with images and messages that glorify perfection as thin and beautiful. In some instances, they also have inadequate education on the merits of healthy, active, nutritious living. As a result, our young women are falling short--failing to realize how extraordinary they are. Instead they focus on everything they are not.
Movemeant’s impact programs focus on helping adolescent girls embody confidence and develop healthy habits so they can be successful in their future and fierce in their determination.
Body-Positive Middle School Curriculum
With a focus on the most formative years of a girl's life—middle school— our curriculum addresses the critical need for emotional, social and physical development for girls, with topics ranging from social media’s impact on beauty ideals to body diversity and genetics. In 2019 we will be expanding our middle school programs beyond the San Francisco Bay Area into New York City, Los Angeles and Nashville!
#ShePlaysWeWin Scholarship Program
We award grants to a variety of young female athletes, from economically-disadvantaged communities with high incidences of health-risk behaviors to up-and-coming all-stars who require additional resources for mental, physical and emotional coaching. We are proud to announce that Movemeant will be giving out $100,000 in #ShePlaysWeWin grants to girls in need in 2018.
Movemeant Impact Spotlight: Isabella
“Keep pushing and trying. Speak out and know that maybe others feel the same way that you do"
Powerful and brave, Isabella started kicking around the ball at the age of 5 and now at 12 years old, Isabella plays for an elite soccer club both locally and statewide. Isabella’s parents rave of the confidence playing soccer has given their daughter and will do anything they can to support her dream of playing at the collegiate level and beyond.
Our charity fitness event series, We Dare to Bare, is a celebration of bodies of all shapes and sizes through sweat, community and courage. We turn a blank canvas into a fitness playground where women come together to celebrate not just their grit, but their beauty with an exciting line-up of fitness classes.
As a symbol of their confidence, women are encouraged to shed their shirts and proudly wear their sports bras as they sweat it out among their body-positive community and raise funds for Movemeant’s impact programs.
