The John Paul II School Bridge Program participants, a peer support group to encourage positive life styles of adolescents, visited Ironwood Outdoor Center, Lumberton, on Oct. 17.
The low ropes program is designed to meet group goals and objectives whether it be teambuilding or just a day of fun. The group had the opportunity to connect with nature and challenge themselves, building self confidence and cultivating positive values.
“We had a wonderful day with our students at Ironwood. We saw students gain self confidence and feel a sense of accomplishment as well as work as a team. These skills contribute greatly to our Bridge Program building peer support,” said Joyce Romano, Bridge Faculty Leader.
