Our Goals . . .

Our Program . . .
This is a 12 weeks program. 8 of those weeks focus on helping teens build skills and healthy habits through cooking skills, nutritional education, resilience, and physical fitness. Through yoga and physical fitness, teens learn different ways to reduce stress in their lives. The final 4 weeks of the program is dedicated to helping the teenagers develop leadership and community outreach skills. They get a chance to participate in a Teen Battle Chef contest, and are also introduced to several resources in the community.
