Youth Determined To Succeed
A Comprehensive Health and Wellness Program

Founded in 1999 by former Gopher and Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Mel Anderson, Youth Determined to Succeed in 2009 began to provide comprehensive health, nutrition, fitness and wellness services to children and families struggling with obesity and related diseases such as diabetes.  Staffed with pediatricians, registered dieticians, registered nurses, community health workers and certified trainers, we have developed a model based on best practices that focus on people suffering from obesity. With 70% of our clients being referred by their doctors, our model has become a vital continuum care referral resource for doctors and clinics.
