Community Tides ~ 12/04

In honor of this year’s Give Jefferson Campaign, in this edition of Community Tides, we decided to spotlight a very special organization here in Jefferson County—The Benji Project. We speak with instructor Heather McCrae Wolf about the Project’s mission and its eight-week program aimed at ages 11 to 19 and their parents. It’s called “Making Friends with Yourself” and it offers stress management and resiliency training to teens, using mindfulness and self compassion. The Benji Project is dedicated to the memory of Benji Kenworthy, who died at age 15 by suicide.
