FACE4kids motivates elementary youth to build fitness, self-esteem, and character before it’s too late. FACE4kids benefits from strategic partnerships that allow the 8-week program to be offered FREE during the school day throughout the year in public school locations, where principals and teachers recognize the positive impact in the lives of their students. Often these students come from communities that suffer from extreme poverty, high crime rates, high unemployment and fractured homes.
This unique program combines Martial arts, jump rope, juggling, agility training and public speaking. Fitness is Essential, yet Character Education is priceless! The emphasis of FACE is fitness and coordination, yet also uses the subliminal concept of building self-esteem and confidence for children through performing and speaking in front of others too.
The 8th week is a graduation where family, friends, administrators, classmates, and guests watch an overview of the program and award ceremony. They feel great about their accomplishments!
