The ability to handle stress is an important skill for all of us to cultivate this year, particularly our youth. This summer, the We Belong Leadership Academy, in partnership with the Child Resiliency Program at MGH and professionals from the Benson Henry Institute, are holding twice weekly stress management groups for over 80 middle and high school aged inner-city youth.
G.R.O.W. (Girls Reflecting Our World) provides time to decompress, breath, and find balance. Zumba, yoga, poetry, dialogue and synergy with our seniors are empowering our girls and inspiring future leaders! Workshops on racial and gender inequality promote self-advocacy and influencing policy change.
Thank you for supporting, and spreading the word. A very special thanks to the Dwyer Foundation, Corey C. Griffin Foundation and Mark Wahlberg Foundation for their support – we are all in this together!
Much appreciation to Commissioner Gross, Superintendent Baston & the Bureau of Community Engagement for the incredible effort put forth to provide these gift cards to families, youth and seniors in our community.
