A World Fit For Kids! is a leading provider of healthy behaviors and personal empowerment programming and training for young people.
Since 1993, A World Fit For Kids! (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! WFIT’s programs and training directly address the epidemic obesity rate—which annually costs the United States over $147 billion in obesity-related health care expenses—and the WFIT unique model ensures youth develop the physical, mental and emotional fitness they need to succeed. In addition, WFIT provides train-the-trainer workshops to other youth-serving organizations and individuals in an effort to positively impact as many young people as possible.
