Youth Services initiative (ysi): Getting fit program
PLAY Boulder is raising $15,000 annually to support YSI's Getting Fit program ensuring all underserved youth participants experience at lease 90 minutes of structured physical activity 2-3 days per week.
The Youth Service Initiative's mission is to inspire youth and families from underrepresented communities to make healthy, caring and responsible choices through recreation, health and well-being opportunities and life skills development. For more than 14 years, YSI has been changing lives and building community among Boulder's economically less fortunate. Programming consists of organized games, arts and crafts, homework help, leadership development and community engagement projects.
Thanks to a generous matching grant from the Youth Opportunities Advisory Board, the Getting Fit Program is helping area youth go above and beyond creating positive self-esteem and leadership opportunities. With your help, the Getting Fit program can expanding to include at least 90 minutes of structured physical activity for every participant.
