Fresh off the 2015 HALO Awards,Nickelodeon has announced the debut of 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.

TheHALO Effect, hosted by Instant Mom‘sSydney Park,aims to inspire kids and teens to be active leaders in their communities by offering an insiders 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 EffectChallenge, 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.

The first teen featured inTheHALO Effectwill be Jessica Collins, a 16 year-old from Shelbyville, KY. At the age of 10, she was inspired by the filmThe Blindside, and the realization that there are kids who dont have a bed, to create A Place to Sleep. With the help of her church, family and the generous contributions of local residents who donate funds, beds and their time, this non-profit organization has provided more than 700 families with bed frames, mattresses and bedding.

Each 30-minute episode will focus on a teen taking on issues ranging from poverty, to helping military families, to the environment. Premiering January 2016 on Nick, the monthly series is executive produced by Nick Cannons NCredible Entertainment and Morgan Spurlocks Warrior Poets.
