Our mission

Helping Others Participate in Exercise (HOPE) is an innovative program designed to provide a safe and unique environment for individuals over the age of 50 to exercise on the University of North Carolina at Greensboro campus. Additionally, HOPE provides practical, hands-on experience for Kinesiology students and research opportunities for faculty.

The UNCG-HOPE program provides a comprehensive fitness program to older adults. The program pairs senior-level undergraduate students with older adults who desire to learn about how to exercise safely.

Classes focus on functional exercises designed to maintain older adults' independence and mobility. We take pride in teaching safe and effective exercises based on the individual's health and medical history.

Although our program is ongoing, we strive to empower them to understand how to exercise in any fitness environment.
