What is The Judgement Free GenerationTM?
The Judgement Free Generation aims to empower a generation to grow up contributing to a more judgement free planet— a place where everyone feels accepted and like they belong.
We are proud to partner with Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA), the nation’s leading youth development organization, supporting millions of kids and teens during the critical out-of-school time, and STOMP Out BullyingTM, the leading and most influential anti-bullying organization for kids and teends in the U.S., to make a meaningful impact on the lives of today's youth.
Together with our franchisees, Planet Fitness has committed $1.3 million in grants and donations to Boys & Girls Clubs of America and STOMP Out Bullying to fund this initiative. And with our members and staff, we continue to raise funds to support a range of activities and educational programs to reduce bullying.
