Fitness And Character Education, Inc. [FACE] was created to share youth leadership principles and fitness in the elementary school environment. This dynamic program instills confidence, personal growth and a positive attitude for all participants. The individual sessions are an “Edu-Taining” approach to respecting one’s self while incorporating fitness skills too.
Whether it be during school, after school, camps, or private, public, alternative, and montessori schools… the focus is the same – Helping today’s youth become tomorrow’s successful leaders.
All kids want to earn something. Like the martial arts, students reach new levels of skill coordination and are “promoted” to different levels after completing the entire FACE session [the minimum session is 8 classes]. They “graduate” by learning all the lessons that are taught during the sessions and even perform some of their skills [both physical skills and public speaking skills] at a “graduation.” Each FACE session earns the child a different colored T-shirt and an award certificate that denotes their accomplishments. This encourages the child to want to earn the next level of colored shirt and accomplish even more.
By instilling a sense of accomplishment in the child, and requiring a certain amount of attendance at the weekly sessions, we help the child set goals and achieve them and ultimately foster life skills that are invaluable in the child’s life.
Since its inception in 2004, the FACE core program and General Assemblies have reached and influenced more than 25,000 students building self confidence, nurturing broken spirits, growing moral character and instilling a non-defeatist attitude. This unique program combines Martial arts, jump rope, juggling, agility training and public speaking. FACE4kids motivates elementary youth to build fitness, self-esteem, and character before it’s too late.
