New Moves for Girls: Summer Program – La Crosse

The Y Teen Center will be offering New Moves for Girls again this summer and is looking for participants. This free program is designed to increase activity level, improve self-image, and nutrition in 8th-12th grade girls. New Moves provides an environment in which girls can be comfortable being physically active, regardless of their size, shape or skill level. This fun, interactive program will run for 8 weeks with a graduation in the 9th week (totaling 72 hours), June 26th through August 23rd, 2017. Girls receive a free 6 month Y membership as a part of being in the program.

“We have found that a diverse range of girls have benefited from New Moves,” Sarah Johnson, YMCA Mental Health Director says of this program that she has overseen for 7 years. “Girls have reported feeling much healthier and we have seen their social and relationship skills improve dramatically. Typically there is not a dry eye at graduation!”
