We recognize that youth boys have their own unique challenges, expectations, and stressors to navigate in adolescence. The creation of our Orenda boys program was developed, as we recognized a gap in programming being offered to support youth boys. We believe yoga and mindfulness coupled with strong mentorship can be impactful on youth boys in helping to develop a greater sense of self awareness. Many boys tend to internalize their emotions, and we believe it is important to provide them with safe relationships and outlets to support them in processing their emotions. In addition, create direction and mentorship for youth boys to express themselves, addressing sense of belonging, social groups, social media, self worth, and pressures experienced from social, academic, and sport expectations. We focus on resiliency, ability to manage conflict and stressful situations and what is healthy exposure to stress.
