PLAYING WITH A PURPOSE
A Fitness Leadership EXperience for incarcerated youth
The mission of Project FLEX is to engage juvenile youth in a positive sports program that teaches leadership, life skills, and healthy fitness behaviors for life after prison.
Project FLEX emphasizes relationship building and mentoring while explicitly teaching life skills through sport. The ultimate goal is for youth to develop life skills that transfer to their post-incarcerated life.
How We Do It
Program opportunities that target physical and psychosocial growth, college readiness, and career exploration are designed to set youth up for success upon release with the goal of reducing recidivism.
