THE STORY:

Day One Youth Interns need help in achieving their goal!

PROJECT: Day One Youth Interns from Ganesha are raising money for an innovative water fountain at their school to supplement and advance the work being done, including promoting healthy eating, active lifestyles and choosing water as the drink of choice, instead of sugar-sweetened beverages. This effort of providing water to teens hopes to fight back against the obesity and Type 2 Diabetes issues that affect Pomona teens and families. The water fountains, or hydration stations, provide cold, filtered water that can be dispensed into a water bottle.

Medical professionals and public health officials agree that consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages is to blame for this public health epidemic that disproportionately affects young people. To combat the issue, Day One Youth Interns are working toward making water more accessible to their peers. Through their research, they have found that young people are heavily marketed to before school and after school, and too often is price an issue when deciding what to drink when teens are thirsty. They agree that water fountains are not an option when deciding on a beverage, instead most teens prefer to purchase sugary drinks or not drink the water from the outdated, poorly maintained water fountains on campus.
