Kevin is also spokesman for A World Fit for Kids! (WFIT), a non-profit organization, which provides gang, drug, and dropout prevention to teens through mentoring programs, fighting obesity, and promoting healthy life choices.

WFIT, headquartered in Los Angeles, California, is the leading nonprofit provider of after school physical activity and youth development programs for children and teens in Los Angeles County. WFIT was the 2007 Gold Medal winner of the California Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, chosen from almost two hundred nominees “for positively impacting the physical activity, fitness and well-being of California’s children and youth.” This is due to WFIT’s outstanding success in preparing young people to graduate from high school, continue on to higher education, and become contributing members of the workforce.
WFIT is successful because the program intentionally develops the emotional, mental and physical fitness of students, and keeps elementary through high school youth actively engaged in positive and productive after-school activities. Today, more than ever, improving students’ fitness levels and overall health is critically important to combating the epidemic of childhood obesity and type-2 diabetes.
WFIT’s unique model, which has been developed over the past 15 years, integrates physical fitness and health with coaching and mentoring, allowing older students to mentor younger students, creating youth leaders of today, every day, and impacting two lives in the process. Moreover, not only does our model programming transform the lives of our students, it also brings about positive change in both the students’ families and the broader community.
