Gym/Fitness Studio

Do you run or manage a gym or fitness studio? Getting involved can be as basic as sharing our event on your social media channels, or as engaged as hosting a class or providing mentorship to one of our scholarship recipients.

"We have the privilege of certifying youths part of Bootcamps for Change looking to get into the fitness industry & couldn’t be more thrilled with the outcome thus far! Also, we’ve attended and taught youths at Horizons for Youth & absolutely love what Bootcamps for Change is doing for these kids...They are smart, energetic, lively & are eager to learn! We can’t wait to certify the next youth!

Growing up in an environment of poverty and hardship myself, I know that all it takes is for one kind gesture from somebody to completely change the trajectory of an individual’s lives. It sure did for me.

So there is no doubt in my mind that this program will change the lives of the MANY youths who just need that positive line of support to help take control of their futures.
