Would you recommend Youth Mentoring Partnership?

by Nicole H. (March 26, 2010)
Friends Fitness is a great way to give back to the community. The mentor puts a child through a workout which is tough and very rewarding. The program is unique and well designed. Attainable goals are set with each mentee based on academics, physical and social aptitudes. There is a great network of volunteers. Everyone is positive and supportive. I would certainly recommend this program to anyone looking to give back and create an active atmosphere for a child.
