Our BoldJourney Program is off and running for the Winter and Spring semesters. We brought our Boldly Me messengers and Boldquest Team to James Leitch Elementary School to teach the students about self esteem, how it's okay to be different, and how to treat each other with respect and compassion. Leitch Principal Mary Lee and her students were simply awesome.
Our Boldquest messengers, Pat and Cheryl, spoke to the kids in a way that kept them engaged and interested in learning.
And always a big hit, the Boldquest Team from Irvington High School performed for them and talked (and listened!) to them about growing up in a behaviorally healthy way.
Soon after our visit with the students at Leitch, we received a kind letter from one of the teachers that read:
Thank you for coming to Leitch today to share your story with our youngsters. Although they were only K-3 grades, the messages you brought were important and valuable.
Alanna's message was very powerful. I applaud her bravery in sharing her story.
It was also great to see the Irvington High students participating. Some of the students may have attended Leitch!
Thank you again for this wonderful program and for coming to Leitch.

It means so much to hear the good work we are doing in our community!
