Beginning last Fall, each Wednesday evening, for 16 weeks, Division of Youth Corrections youth at Residential Youth Services (RYS) Hilltop in Grand Junction practiced mindfulness and self compassion in a program facilitated by Hilltop Volunteer Skip Hudson and therapists Kyla Hauer and Stacy Schoolfield. The program, "Making Friends with Yourself" was developed for youth and is based on the Mindful Self Compassion program, designed for adults by Kristin Neff, PhD and Christopher Germer PhD.
On March 21, ten youth and staff from Grand Mesa Youth Services Center (GMYSC) took a day trip to the Grand Mesa. The trip was planned to celebrate youth in the program that are demonstrating leadership at the facility, in school, and in treatment groups. To help validate hard work does not go unnoticed, GMYSC partnered with The Nature Center and the Nordic Council and ventured out on a cross country skiing trip on the County Line Trail atop the Grand Mesa. During the trip, the youth were able to experience skiing for the first time, while taking in the crisp air and breathtaking views the trail had to offer.
