“SHAPE gives us skills to make differences in the community. One person can make a difference. If I give back now, I will definitely know how to give back when I'm rich and famous.“

SHAPE's mission is to empower high school students to achieve personal and professional success by providing philanthropic, leadership, career and civic opportunities.



SHAPE students have had an incredible impact on the community:

  • 12,476 High School Students
  • 298,390 Community Service Hours
  • $76,691 Raised by Students and donated to school programs or nonprofits
  • 282 Nonprofits have received funding
  • $522,662 Donated by SHAPE to local nonprofits based on students' grant awards



The SHAPE program was introduced in 4 participating South Florida high schools in 2002 as an initiative of the Mark J. Gordon Foundation. In October 2003, SHAPE, Inc. became an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and began its expansion in Broward and Miami-Dade Counties. As of the 2017-2018 school year, SHAPE successfully operates in 13 schools in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties in Florida.  Schools, teachers and students have reported positive results and the SHAPE Clubs have generated an enthusiastic response from school administrators, School Boards, government and community leaders including Florida Governor Rick Scott and former Florida Governors Charlie Crist and Jeb Bush. In 2008, SHAPE expanded its mission to include more facets of youth development. The program is on the brink of a new and exciting movement.
