Thank you for your interest in our 2019-2020 Sweetheart Program. This program is designed for strong leaders who are community minded, and have a desire to be advocates for heart health.
Did you know that cardiovascular diseases and stroke claim the lives of more Americans than the next seven leading causes of death combined? The Sweethearts Program is designed to educate and empower high school sophomore girls while engaging them in the American Heart Association’s Mission: Building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular disease and stroke. Sweethearts participate in educational programs and activities over the course of the school year while becoming heart advocates. Participants also develop team building concepts, earn volunteer hours, and gain valuable leadership skills.
Sweetheart activities begin in August and culminate in May of 2020. In February, the Sweethearts are highlighted as valuable volunteers and young women of strength and character at the Northwest Arkansas Heart Ball. The experience and knowledge received through the Sweethearts Program have an immediate and positive impact on the participants and our community!
