A World Fit For Kids! (WFIT) high school afterschool programs include:
- Physical Activity
- Homework Help/Study Time
- Enrichment Activities
- Work/College Readiness
- Community Service/Service-Learning
High school students are looking for opportunities to define their place in the world. WFIT provides these teens with a safe, healthy environment to learn and explore as they broaden their horizons beyond self and school. WFIT’s programs focus on high school students being empowered with skills they need to excel in every aspect of life, rather than feeling entitled to succeed. Our programs emphasize personal responsibility, leadership, preparing for high school graduation, work/college readiness, and healthy living/obesity prevention. They also give participants the chance to be mentored and to mentor others. High school participants design their own programs by choosing activities ranging from traditional and non-traditional sports to dance, music, and arts clubs to community service projects to workshops focused on work/college readiness. WFIT also encourages them to take an ownership role in the program by inviting them to submit proposals for new clubs and projects.
Mentors in Motion
Mentors in Motion℠ (MiM) is a comprehensive healthy behaviors and personal empowerment leadership training and internship program offered to high school students. The program engages teens in physical activity and other interactive exercises designed to promote success and increase self-awareness, build confidence and strengthen interpersonal skills. Success Strategies from the MiM program can be applied to a number of purposes including personal development, academic development, and team building.
Freshmen Leadership Program
Freshman Leadership Program℠ (FLP) engages incoming freshmen in workshops where they develop the tools necessary to successfully navigate their high school experience leading to graduation. Ongoing workshops and meetings throughout all four years of high school give participants opportunities to engage in leadership development, community service, college preparation and continued mentoring from older peers.
