What is the Fuel Up to Play 60 Youth Council?

The Youth Council is a group of Fuel Up to Play 60's most engaged Ambassadors who have attended at least one National Summit. These students have proven leadership experience as well as participated in specific Fuel Up to Play 60 leadership trainings and often represent Fuel Up to Play 60 at community and national events. These students have proven their dedication to healthy eating and physical activity and have been a part of Fuel Up to Play 60 over consecutive school years.
