Congratulations to Yokebed, CF-L1!
Last month, FYR alumna Yokebed received her CrossFit Level 1 Certificate.
Yokebed first joined our program in 2013 in Camden, NJ. She attended our summer leadership camp as a youth athlete, and now nine years later has returned to Camp FYR as an Alumna Volunteer Coach.
“This organization has impacted my life in so many beautiful ways. I want to give back and be part of this community. I had an amazing experience when I used to go to the leadership camps and I want to keep being part of that.”
Since 2020, Forging Youth Resilience has partnered with the CrossFit Scholarship Program, an initiative to better serve underrepresented and underserved communities and provide free access to the CrossFit Level 1 Certificate Course.
Through this partnership, FYR was able to provide Yokebed with a full scholarship to attend the CrossFit Level 1 Course in Hamilton, NJ this September.
“Thank you to all the coaches that have inspired me and impacted my life. Thank you to everyone who has worked out with me. You guys are like family. We have been sweaty together, gassed out together, and of course, we have grown together.”
