The HALO Effect, a brand-new docu-series that profiles in every episode a young activist who is making a positive change in his or her community and inspiring others to do the same. Each 30-minute episode will focus on a teen taking on issues ranging from poverty, to helping military families, to the environment. The HALO Effect series, which will be hosted by Sydney Park (Instant Mom), builds upon the network's successful pro-social initiative of the same name and the annual HALO Awards concert special (airing this year on Nov. 29 at 7 p.m. [ET/PT]). The HALO Effect aims to inspire kids and teens to be active leaders in their communities by offering an insider's look at the personal stories of individuals who have been inspired to give back. Each episode will be capped by the profiled teen kicking off a "HALO Effect Challenge", an action or activity encouraging viewers to become a part of the HALO movement by giving them ways to Help and Lead Others (HALO) in their own communities.
