The Move U.P. Program focuses on building resilience in youth 14 years of age and older through evidence-based practices such as movement, mindfulness activities, and safe social interaction. This program is free and includes a Y membership for the duration of the program. Materials and a snack are provided at no cost. Special thanks to our donors True North Federal Credit Union and the West End Health Foundation for making this program possible. Youth must be registered to attend.
