Matthew– a Youth with Promise

You could call him the strong and silent type. Matthew is a teen from Wisconsin’s Northwoods who is pumped about getting even stronger. He’s set his sights on working, and with the support of Wisconsin Promise and others, he succeeded in his first job of maintaining his high school’s weight room. Next he got a job keeping CrossFit Chippewa Falls in tip-top shape. Matthew’s connected his interest in getting healthy and fit with his job goals, and there’s no stopping him. Matthew is a youth with Promise, building muscle while working, learning, and pursuing his dreams

Matthew is a Youth with Promise, with plans to change the world.
