Forging Character & Strength Through Fitness & Sports


You can help teenage kids to forge character, build mental toughness and master goal setting skills 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 of 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 promotes volunteerism
  • Have fun!

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

Workout Times:

Thursdays: Flexible start between 5:30--7:00pm

Sundays: Flexible start between 10:30am--12:00pm

Summer hours (June -Aug): Mondays & Thursdays between 5-7pm

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. For additional information, visit
