Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

FACE strives to improve the lives of the children through an effective, holistic system designed to give them the individual tools to self- empower and the confidence and skills they need to learn, grow and mature through their empowerment. FACE works in any elementary school and excels in at-risk schools where academic failures due to behavior problems and/or low standardized test results have become the norm. The program targets 3rd thru 5th grade children, ages 8-11 in any participating Duval/Chester County Elementary School (or school system). FACE4Kids directly impacts 300+ participants and indirectly impacts over 3000 people in the Duval/Chester county public school system each year. The program is during school hours thus selected children go directly to a dedicated class room or class location on site. No transportation is needed. The sessions can be held either in the morning or the afternoon, prior to school release.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The three main beneficial aspects of FACE are seen in the changes that take place in the life of the individual student. Teachers and faculty have observed the following:

1) Increased self-esteem. As students reach new levels of skill coordination and complete exercises in character building, such as public speaking, they are “promoted” with different color t-shirts, certificates and ribbons denoting their accomplishments. This is reinforced through praise and reflection upon how much they have accomplished, with focus on being a leader.

2) Increased self-confidence. This is exemplified both inside the classroom where students are less afraid to participate in learning activities and outside the classroom where students interact more positively with others.

3) Aggression Management. Students prone to disciplinary problems find physical and emotional outlets through exercise, mental stimulation and accomplishment.

Holding students accountable for their actions. They graduate with awards (T-shirts, diplomas and various prizes) when they meet the goals which are discussed with teachers. FACE4Kids works as a unique combination of fitness while focusing on character education from a mentor perspective for the youth.

FACE strives to improve the lives of the children through effective and holistic solutions, while holding students accountable for their actions. With FACE4Kids in every community across the country, every child can have access to fitness, leadership and character skills that will last a lifetime. With your partnership, FACE has an opportunity to provide a solution with a solid foundation to empower at-risk children while monitoring their academic improvements and data metrics.

Each charitable donation that will directly impact 300 students and indirectly impact over 3000 people within a public school district.

Please consider making a difference by investing in the success of FACE4Kids.

FACE metrics (Pre/Post survey) on each student in 5 different categories (Fitness, Confidence, School Effort, Social Skills, and Behavior Choices). Though testimonials and requests for FACE to return each year is documented, the Metrics align with the focus in the following areas:

1. Attendance – Teachers cannot educate students who are not in class. FACE creates incentives for students to attend school to participate in the program.

2. Homework Completion – A high percentage of students do not complete their daily homework assignments. This high percentage creates obvious difficulties for teachers. FACE participants will be required to complete their homework to successfully remain in the program.

3. Disciplinary Incidents – Using teacher evaluation metrics, students participating in FACE will be monitored for decreased incident rates relative to their peers.

Fitness And Character Education, Inc. (FACE) is organized to share youth leadership principles for at-risk youths in the elementary school environment. This dynamic program combines confidence, growth and positive attitude leaving an imprint that lasts a lifetime. The individual sessions are an “Edu-Taining” approach to respecting one’s self while incorporating fitness skills too. The focus is on fitness to help reduce obesity in the kids today along with character education to build self-esteem and respect. FACE programs have been shared at over 50 different public elementary locations in Northeast Florida since 2004, while expanding to Phoenixville PA during 2012 school year.

FACE benefits from strategic partnerships that allow the program to be offered in schools where principals and teachers recognize the positive impact FACE makes in the lives of their students. Often these students come from communities that suffer from extreme poverty, high crime rates, high unemployment and fractured homes. FACE work in the lives of these students and the resulting community engagement are best reflected in the large number of schools that continue to request FACE each academic year, found on the www.face4kids.org website.
