Walk it Out, Talk it Out
Each Mind Matters

Adolescents tend to view their own peers as being more credible, having a better understanding of the concerns of young people, have a sense of responsibility to their friendship group, and are more likely to model the behaviors of peers than adults (DuBois & Karcher, 2014; Karcher, 2009; Smith, 2011). Furthermore, social networks among peers provide emotional, informational, and appraisal support that creates a sense of psychological safety within the peer group, resulting in higher motivation to change behavior and sustain behavioral change.

FITGirl, Inc, in partnership with Fontenelle Forest, is hosting a 4-week physical and mental health program, every Sunday focusing on social-emotional learning with 90-minute brisk walking, yoga cool down, mentorship, and journaling.

Cost for the 4 week program is $25 total and includes a shirt, journal and access to Tree Rush Adventure on last day of class. This program was created for girls and non-binary youth in grades 5th-7th. The program will be held at Fontenelle Forest every Sunday, April 16th to May 7th, 1-3 pm.
