2022 Health & Well-Being Finalist
ORIGINAL PITCH DESCRIPTION:
Bee Brave aims to help youth understand and deal with anxiety by engaging them in what is an anxiety provoking activity for most – beekeeping. The program teaches participants to remain centered in the presence of anxiety as they move through the complex steps of hive assessment. Participants learn to be increasingly focused and capable while examining a hive and come to understand that they can ‘bee brave’ and apply these skills to other complex challenges in their lives.
