Tara Ray and Katie McCune, Prevention Specialists at the Young Women’s Resource Center, encourage and support young women in making healthy life style choices and becoming involved in community service projects.
After bi-weekly participation this semester in an after school YWRC group called, Hit the Ground Running, the girls successfully completed a 5k run at the Drake Relays. Fourteen young women and nine volunteers participated in the run. Red faces and beating hearts concluded the energy filled day.
To recognize and celebrate Earth Week, YWRC after school groups contribute to planning and planting a community garden on Kingman Boulevard as well as enhancing the front entry of the Young Women’s Resource Center with colorful plantings.
