On Saturday, November 12, my daughter Kelsey and I will be hiking the 6.5 mile Romero Canyon trail to raise money for AHA!, a Santa Barbara organization dedicated to the development of character, imagination, emotional intelligence and social conscience in teenagers. It is an innovative curriculum taught in schools at the junior high and high school level through after school and summer programs. AHA! is teaching teens to listen deeply, speak authentically, cope with peer pressure, manage adversity, and peacefully resolve conflict. There are national trainings so that these practices go to programs and schools all over. 🙂
I realize there are many causes and disasters right now that need attention. This is a cause dear to our hearts. Young people are our leaders of tomorrow and an important investment in the future for all of us. I have seen first hand the difference AHA! has made in so many young lives.
