Mind wellness objectives:

- Participants will learn how to connect to others in their life in a meaningful and supportive way. They will learn how they can be spark champions.
- Participants will learn how to look at situations in their lives from different perspectives, and how to align their chosen perspective with their values.
- Participants will learn different ways to get back on track when life feels like it is getting away from them.
- Participants will be provided with tools to navigate through life with confidence and feelings of self worth
Data we have collected (both anecdotal and pre/post assessments) clearly shows the impact the program has had! The change in the participants from September to June is incredible and beyond what we expected. Seeing and hearing the impact has inspired us to expand and continue to try to reach as many youth as possible.
