UBU's 2018 fall 8-wk program is Oct. 9-Dec. 4. | Sessions are underway!
UBU is an active wellness program for young girls to grow peer connections, consider physical activity as a life-long choice, build self-confidence and develop leadership skills.
One session left! From Oct. 9 - Dec. 4, 2018, 8 girls in Grades 6-8 registered for this 8-week program including weekly sessions with activities focusing on physical, mental, social, emotional, and leadership.
UBU stands for “You be you,” emphasizing the need for girls to be themselves and own it. Having girls shy away from speaking up for themselves, being proud of their abilities, and being less active is taking a huge toll on girls’ self-confidence. The stats show it is resulting in life-altering results: obesity, depression, anxiety, school challenges (i.e., low grades, reduced interest, bullying, etc.) and more.
There is a strong connection between the mind and body that is easily forgotten no matter a person's age, educational background, or fitness level. UBU introduces the idea to young girls that if you take care of yourself by moving more, reaching out to others for help when needed, and finding supports and postive stress outlets, it will have an instant and positive effect on your well-being. The mind and body directly impact one another by pulling one another up or down.
