COVID-19 has modified plans for the world, including the UBU: Girls' future multi-week programs. With the slow return back to groups gathering, Michelle led a 4-week outdoor run club with a bit of journaling (indoors) throughout August 2021 for youth who identify as female aged 9-15 to help beat the stats of low participation rates in sports & physical activity - especially during/post-pandemic.
Typical UBU: Girls Programming:
UBU: Girls' program is a set of 6-8 sessions about active wellness that empower youth who identify as female to be better communicators, more physically active, and more self-aware. The program emphasizes connection with others and our whole being: social, emotional, and physical.
UBU's founder leads most sessions while trained/expert guest instructors lead some sessions that involve their area of expertise: nature, yoga, dance, speed training, sport injury prevention, etc.
Weekly emails/updates keep parents/guardians in the loop of activities. Surveys are also given to participants and guardians to determine baselines at the beginning of sessions, midway, and after the program concludes to collect qualitative data for continuous improvement.
Typical details for spring/fall 8-week programs include:
Spring Session: start mid-April to early June
Fall Session: start early-mid Oct. to early Dec.
For youth who identify as female in Grades 6-8.
Max. 15 participants per program & min. of 8.
Multi-sessions involving group activities that encourage overall well-being: physical, social, mental, and emotional.
UBU: Girls touches on a variety of well-being tools every session exposing participants to different ways that may help relieve stress, anxiety, self-doubt, etc. What works for them may not resonate with another participant, which is why I introduce a variety of activities that gravitate towards different learning styles and personality types.
Participants can expect to do some journaling, crafts, outdoor exploration, walking, physical activities/fitness, group work, and listening to guest speakers' inspirational stories. outside and walk, sometimes run or do exercises all with the intent to help participants become more self aware, self-regulate extreme emotions, and become more resilient to everyday stressors.
