elevateHER is kicking off its Fall Programming Session on Oct. 1 and is looking to add to its Buena Vista Cohort.

This fall, the organization will focus on giving each participant a foundation in rock climbing, hiking and disc golf with day outings to Shelf Road in Cañon City.

Special service projects are also planned such as making hats for cancer patients and a local trash pickup. Adventure coordinator, Josie Johnston, stated that she “was really excited with this fall’s programming calendar and is excited to once again be working with the young women of Chaffee County.”

Integrated into all programming is leadership skill building activities such as designating a “Leader of the Day” and discussing different leadership styles. This fall, elevateHER’s wellness workshops will focus on stress management and self-care, nutrition, bullying and healthy living. The girls will also practice yoga twice a month at jalaBlu yoga studio.

All programming is geared towards giving participants the skills needed to be happy, well-adjusted adults.

There are currently a few spots open in the Fall Programming Session with a deadline to register of Sept. 30. The cohort will have a maximum of 12 participants.

Program fees are based on a family’s total income and will include all technical gear, outdoor clothing, transportation, wellness materials and nutritious snacks.

Programming will be held in Buena Vista on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons.

For more information or to register a participant, email Kristen Van Norman at kristen@elevateherco.org.
