Wellfit Girls Program SWFL, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit registered in Naples, Florida. Wellfit Girls Program was founded by Jill Wheeler to inspire teen girls to climb high in all areas of life. Wellfit Girls provides a unique and meaningful five-month leadership, fitness and empowerment program specifically designed to empower teen girls to believe they can do anything. The program concludes with a life-changing trip to Peru and trek to Machu Picchu, one of the new Seven Modern Wonders of the World.

Eleven Southwest Florida teens, ages 15-19, will take part in the 2016 program. In order to successfully transform future female leaders, Wellfit Girls follows a curriculum that guides girls through a combination of physical, mental and interpersonal challenges designed to prepare them for the final trip to Peru in June and the rest of their life. The struggles they will experience on the mountain will correlate to life struggles they may currently have or may have in future years. They will learn they can accomplish anything they put their mind to. The goal is to inspire and empower each girl while nurturing and developing each girl’s individual leadership style. We are building strong women to be our future leaders.

The intentional use of the mountain, as metaphor, the outdoors and other methods used through this program teach girls they can climb high in all areas of life. The program helps these girls overcome self-esteem issues and learn coping mechanisms as well as social entrepreneurship, leadership and communications skills. The girls workout with a personal trainer, learn yoga and have weekly leadership group sessions. The girls are asked to dig deep in terms of who they are now and the person they want to become. The idea is that you’re not BORN a warrior, but you GROW into one!
