“Fight for life is a great name for this organization. It signifies the importance of being prepared for and having a strategy for battling for your own success. Most of the time we don’t actually sit in and reflect on the things we do each day that are used as tomorrow’s foundation for success. We spend a lot of time reflecting on our mistakes and challenges hoping to avoid them in the future. However, if we spent more time preparing, planning, strategizing for the future we would be increasingly more successful. Our lives are worth fighting for. You can only be successful in a fight when you have a plan. This organization is about teaching young people how to think critically about their choices. This organization is about coaching professionals whether they be teachers, coaches, social workers, school leaders, etc. how to engage with our youth and their families in a way that helps identify options for them and coaches them to select the best option for their individual lives. ”
