Charlotte, Get Your Move On! is a dynamic health education and community outreach initiative that is created, produced and performed by adolescent youth. Based on data from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Youth Risk Behavior Survey, this youth initiative addresses the current trends and health related issues facing teenagers today, with a focus on positive behavioral and health choices.
Charlotte, Get Your Move On! is spearheaded by Teen Health Connection in collaboration with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools -- Northwest School of the Arts, Carolinas HealthCare System -- Levine Children's Hospital, Mecklenburg Medical Alliance and Endowment, MeckLINK Behavioral Healthcare, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools' Parent University, United Way of Central Carolinas and many in-kind donors and community volunteers.
In 2012, Teen Health Connection and Northwest School of the Arts were proud to present: "The Big Picture," a play that examines a day in the life of a typical teenager. This performance about teenage challenges, based on the 2011 Youth Risk Behavior Survey, premiered at Northwest School of the Arts and highlighted themes from "frenemies" and "swag" to peer pressure and social status.
