Huddle Up Teams Up with the Bill of Rights Institute to Support Community Engagement and Mental Health


DENVER, May 15, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Huddle Up, the leader in supporting children's growth, development, and mental health, is excited to announce a partnership with the Bill of Rights Institute's MyImpact Challenge, a program that promotes civic engagement and community building.

The partnership aims to leverage Huddle Up's expertise in team-based care and community empowerment alongside the Bill of Rights Institute's extensive network of educators.

With a network of over 76,000 educators, who teach more than 7.6 million students per year, the Institute plays a vital role in supporting young people and promoting community engagement.

"We are excited to partner with the Bill of Rights Institute to unite communities in nurturing the growth, development and mental health of our kids and teens," said Dr. Omar Dawood, CEO and Board Member at Huddle Up. "The MyImpact Challenge is a wonderful opportunity to combine our resources to recognize kids and teens as they contribute to their communities." 

As part of the partnership, Huddle Up will sponsor the Bill of Rights Institute's MyImpact Challenge, a contest in which students nationwide develop community service and civic engagement projects, and share how tose projects impact their communities and promote constitutional principles like equality, liberty, and justice.



Throughout May Mental Health Month, Huddle Up will showcase projects that address mental health and belonging in the community. Moreover, Huddle Up will recognize and amplify the Bill of Rights Institute's community impact through sponsoring MyImpact Challenge awards, and working directly with students to help them bring their ideas and projects to their school boards. Huddle Up will also support the Bill of Rights Institute's 76,000 educators with lesson plans focused on mental health, inclusion, and belonging in their classrooms.

"We are thrilled to collaborate with Huddle Up to support students and community engagement," said David J. Bobb, Ph.D., president and CEO of the Bill of Rights Institute. "Through MyImpact Challenge, we aim to help students develop civic engagement skills that create a lasting impact on their growth, development, well-being, and ability to engage productively in their communities. We are excited by the energy, commitment, and expertise Huddle Up will bring to the program."
