IPride is a self-esteem building program for youth with an emphasis on creative thought/expression and basic physical fitness. IPride is comprised of 2 sessions: IPride Write and IPride Fit.
IPride Write teaches the practice of mindfulness, which relieves stress and fosters being present for oneself, others and life. Presenters learn to express their ideas with confidence and articulate effectively while the “audience” learns to listen and respect diverse ways of thinking.
At the core of this session, is self-respect and improved self-esteem. Building blocks for this are: knowledge, acceptance and education with regard to our bodies. Participants will need to bring 2 canned goods to be used as “weights” during the class which will be donated to a local food pantry upon class completion.
