Empowered Youth was developed by Greg LeFever, a southern California native with over twenty years of fitness, wellness education, and consultation and development experience. Over the years of working with adults, families, and youth groups, I saw the need to develop a program which focused on the teenage kids. These are the kids who will make the changes within their spheres of influence and beyond. These are the kids that we see that are being diagnosed with adult diseases at early ages and have sports injuries that were very unlikely ten years ago at their age. These are the kids that will impact society now and as they grow.
