Forging Character & Strength Through Fitness & Sports

About

You can help teenage kids to develop grit (www.youthmp.org/gotgrit) the ability to overcome life's formidable challenges to be successful today and in the future. Our mentoring programs help youth to master goal setting skills, build mental toughness, and forge character through intense physical fitness and sports.

Friend Fitness is the Youth Mentoring Partnership's signature program and matches volunteer mentors with male and female students (grades 6-12) who could benefit from a positive, responsible adult role-model. Through a unique approach to intense weekly workouts and a focus on goal-setting, kids discover what it takes to achieve their goals not only in the gym but in life!

As a mentor, you can expect to:

  • Lead students through an intense physical fitness & strength training program
  • Work one-on-one in the gym alongside a group of mentor-student matches
  • Focus on student-led goal setting, planning & achievement
  • Celebrate students success through "earned recognition" sessions at workouts
  • Nurture positive relationships in an environment that promote volunteerism
  • Have fun!

No prior training or experience required! Professional training and on-site staff support provided.

Workout Times:

Thursdays 5:30pm-7:00pm

Sundays 10:30am- Noon

Please plan to commit to at least one year (once or twice a week) to be a mentor with the program and to complete the recruitment / screening process. Volunteer opportunities other than mentoring are available.
