A World Fit for Kids

mission:

Since 1993, WFIT has positively impacted the lives of over 200,000 youth through its healthy behaviors and youth development programs in communities with some of the highest obesity rates and lowest high school graduation rates in Los Angeles. WFIT’s distinctive mentoring model helps young people push beyond self-imposed limitations, refine existing skills and develop new ones. High school participants work with positive adult role models, discover their own strengths in leadership, and in turn, become active advocates, empowered leaders and healthy behaviors ambassadors who positively influence their peers, families, schools and communities. These teens are equipped to graduate from high school ready for higher education, the workforce, and a healthy, prosperous future.WFIT’s vision is that kids are fit, healthy and ready to learn!
