The powerhouse behind - Shape Up US!

For as long as she can remember, Jyl Steinback has had a calling to create healthier futures for families and communities. Now nationally known as the Executive Director of Shape Up US, she has spent the last nine years making it her personal mission to incorporate innovative physical movement into everyday curriculum in schools.


Shape Up US is a nonprofit solution to childhood obesity. Schools with classrooms from Kindergarten to 6th grade can benefit from Jyl’s Hip Hop Healthy Heart Program for Children™, a creative musical curriculum that can be implemented in the form of after school programs, PE classes, camps, teacher trainings, or classroom teachings.


What makes the Hip Hop program especially unique is the approach taken to the whole child, not focusing on just one aspect such as physical health. Stress reduction, critical thinking, positive group dynamics, and community involvement are just some of the modules included in the program. Jyl states that by incorporating these lessons, Shape Up US hopes to “integrate a full-spectrum of self discovery and self-esteem techniques, in addition to health and wellness.”


One of the greatest parts of Shape Up US is the opportunity for community involvement on a daily basis. From students to teachers, parents to volunteers, there is no shortage of individuals being impacted, and making an impact. Jyl names Clyde Baker, of Clyde Baker Productions, as a phenomenal talent, and one of her biggest supporters and most energetic difference-makers in the Shape Up US community. She is also thankful for Nicole Duncan and her son (her “rockstar volunteers”), and Julie Gabos (Shape Up US Director of Project Management) for their hard work within the organization, as well as countless others! If you or anyone you know may be interested, volunteers are always welcome.


In addition to a school curriculum, you can always find Shape Up US involved in several community events. Here in Phoenix, you can find them at these fun-filled happenings before the end of the year!


November 17th: Ninja Warrior Family Expo, Cashman Park (2222 N 44th Place, Phoenix AZ), 10:00 A.M.- 4:00 P.M.

December 8th: Michael Jackson Impersonator Concert @ Baker Showroom, 4:00-10:30 P.M.

December 15th: Family Engagement Free Block Party @ The Greater Progressive Christian Church, 10 A.M.-3 P.M.


Shape Up US is truly a unique program that Give Garden is thrilled to support! As a Give Garden subscriber, you are able to choose your fundraising recipient when you sign up, but can change month to month to spread the love if you see multiple charities or organizations that speak to you! Consider choosing Shape Up US to help make a lasting impact on the youth of your community. If you have questions regarding volunteer work or want to know more about incorporating the curriculum into your school’s classrooms, please visit www.shapeupus.org.
