What is Feet First?
Our program combines physical exercise, mentoring and mental health counseling to give youth the tools and confidence they need to persevere and flourish.
The tolls of the pandemic along with the everyday stresses and strains of childhood and adolescence cause many kids and teens to experience significant levels of stress, anxiety, depression. The Surgeon General of the United States has declared a crisis in youth mental health.
