I have been a board member at FIT for many years and have consistently been proud to be involved with an extraordinary group of people accomplishing extraordinary results for unemployed and underemployed motivated clients. Every penny raised goes to provide vocational testing and training of clients, all officers and board members serve without pay and in fact pay for the opportunity to serve. FIT's success rate is unmatched in this segment, and is a direct result of the daily interaction with clients that has always separated FIT from other vocational training providers.

So the people at fit are very inspirational they have your back from the beginning and like my case worker said “We will make the food, but you gotta make your plate.” Which in simple words we will help you get what you need but it’s up to you to make it happen. Im very thankful for the staff and support here at fit.
