RightFit is a coalition of students, parents, educators, sponsors, public safety personnel and committed volunteers who choose to work together to enhance a safer and healthier community. We do this by supporting an after-school program that encourages academic growth, fun physical activity, and a nutritious meal, which is all provided in an environment of courtesy and respect. Over time, we will strive to stabilize communities, enhance academic participation and achievement, improve the health of students, identify education and career options, and create an atmosphere of cooperation across the community.
