Trauma-Informed Fitness Class at First Day of Peer Mentor Summer Learning Series
Today, we had our first session of our Peer Mentor Summer Learning Series! In the morning, movement practitioner, Erica, provided a trauma-informed fitness class for our Peer Mentors. It was great to learn more about the ways fitness can help with trauma recovery, and to get moving! For more info on her work check out: https://www.move-often.com/
In the afternoon, our staff got our whole team up to date on the work of our SEL Circles, and what new groups we have going on in the summer and fall.
This was a great introduction to our Summer Learning Series, we can’t wait for next week’s session!
