Foundation Programs

National Youth Physical Fitness Program

The United States Marines Youth Foundation, Inc. provides program books and videos to athletic directors so they can set up a fitness program within their school or youth organization. The 20-page full color program book is a complete how-to book and comes with scoring charts, examples of the competitive exercises and even offers descriptions and examples of alternative exercises for students who are not at their peak fitness levels or may need special assistance. The K-12 Program is designed to teach kids at an early age about the importance of staying healthy and promotes a "Fitness for Life" message. Each year that a child participates in the program, and continues to show progress, he/she can earn a beautiful full-color certificate, up to 17 total. As a child progresses through the program, and once they reach high school, they are eligible to participate in organized state, regional and national competition.

National High School Physical Fitness Program

High school aged kids in grades 9-12 are eligible to participate in state, regional and national physical fitness competition. Many high schools and youth groups form teams to compete at these events. The United States Marines Youth Foundation, Inc. funds and administers these events. Winners from the state competition advance to regional events. Regional winners ultimately earn a spot at the National High School Physical Fitness Championships held in San Diego each spring. Funding for the three levels of competition is based solely on private donations. In past years, the students had to raise the money themselves in order to participate at any level of competition. This kind of effort takes away from the Foundation’s focus - the "Fitness for Life" message.

Semper Fidelis Award for Musical Excellence Program

Each year the United States Marines Youth Foundation, Inc. awards approximately 15,000 Semper Fidelis Award for Musical Excellence certificates to deserving high school students. High school band directors from across the nation submit their student nominations for the year. The United States Marines Youth Foundation, Inc. provides the certificates to these schools free of charge. This certificate program is a tool that educators have to recognize deserving students and works towards keeping the Arts alive in our schools.
