Youth for Fitness and Education
To challenge and inspire young leaders through fitness and education programs.
YFE was formed after severe budget cuts in California, forcing YFE’s first school partner to lose part of their fitness programming. The founders saw not only a need for more youth programs, but intentional and data-driven programming that integrated sports with the importance of academics and leadership. After working in public education, the founders saw a great need for afterschool programming that created a safe place for students – a unique place where students could be creative and lead their own program, but one that was structured with well trained professionals, mentors, and educators.
