To empower underprivileged and underserved youth to excel in life through: educational services, health/nutritional awareness, physical activities, social responsibility, cultural appreciation and long term mentoring; further more to rebuild youth and families by repairing the damage done by social messages that does not teach or validate personal and or social responsibility.
We believe until we restore values, principals and teaching points passed down from generation to generation the youth in our community will forever be lost.
In 2005 Keith and Karen Johnson started the Southern California Falcons Youth Football and Cheerleading program, the goal was to provide kids in the community a safe place to play. However, Keith and Karen quickly realized the needs of the children far exceeded that of a safe place to play. Many children in our community suffered from educational starvation, character depletion, absence of personal responsibility and a void of positive role models.
In response to needs of our “babies” in the spring of 2007 Southern California Falcons Youth Football and Cheer, became Falcons Youth and Family Services (FYFS), a sports base youth development organization.
FYFS use the social capitol of youth sports to obtain positive outcomes in four key areas:
Hunger Relief : Kooking 4 Kids Program
Academic Enrichment: School Monitoring & Tutorial Services
Character Development: It’s Time to Teach New School Kids, Old School Values
Health and Wellness: Camp H.O.P.E. (Helping the Obesity Problem End)
