We at Centene Corporation, Cenpatico/Envolve PeopleCare (Centene’s behavioral health subsidiary), and Sunshine Health Plan are committed to achieving healthier outcomes for our members and the communities we serve. Our focus not only includes clinical outcomes, but high-quality programs and initiatives that target some of our most vulnerable populations. Our Strong Youth Strong Communities Youth Summit Initiative brings together youth ages 13-18 for a dialogue focused on the challenges they are facing as well as possible solutions.

We have partnered with NFL Hall of Famer, Darrell Green, to help us implement this initiative in target cities across the U.S. Because we believe healthcare works best when delivered locally, we’ve garnered strong support from the education community, mentors, health experts, and community-based organizations. Together, we can ensure that our youth are healthy in mind and body, and successful in life. Strong youth indeed yield strong communities.
