We won’t watch from the sidelines.

We are a team of more than 1,000 NCAA varsity athletes and over 7,000 DC teens who are committed to making our nation’s cities healthier. The Grassroot Project capitalizes on the excitement, relatability, and popularity of sports to provide much-needed health literacy and social empowerment programs to middle school youth. The only way for us to succeed is to believe in the power of youth to make a difference. In addition to providing health education to middle school youth, we invest in the leadership training, cultural competency, and professional skills of hundreds of NCAA varsity athletes who serve as our program facilitators.
