Go! Austin / Vamos! Austin is a public health, science-based non-profit initiative that uses community organizing to improve knowledge about and equitable access to healthy lifestyles by engaging and developing community leaders who identify, initiate, and lead efforts to reduce barriers to healthy food and safe physical activity in their neighborhoods and schools.
Residents build first-hand knowledge, engage and take ownership in the built environment, policy, and health promotion. The collective efficacy of this network encourages peers, friends, and neighbors to civically and socially engage to support positive changes in their community environment.
