A UNIQUE OFFERING FOR YOUNG WOMEN: EXPRESS YOURSELF THROUGH HEART AND ART!
The Kawartha Sexual Assault Centre, Trent University, and The Mane Intent have partnered to research the experiences of young women who participate in a new program entitled Building internal Resilience Through Horses.
The program is open to young women aged 13 to 18 who have witnessed or experienced family conflict, dating violence, or other forms of abuse. The program is designed to promote healthy self-esteem, emotional awareness, coping skills and personal resilience.
Participants will have the opportunity to learn and grow through a free 10-week group program which combines expressive arts, education and an opportunity to work in partnership with horses. All activities will be ground-based, no riding is involved.
No previous art or horse experience is required. All services are free and confidential. Transportation will be provided if needed.
For more information or to register for the program, please call the Kawartha Sexual Assault Centre at 705-748-5901 and ask for Katie McKeiver, email at firstname.lastname@example.org
