Kai Wellness Center receives early Christmas gift

HONOLULU (KHNL) - The Kai Wellness Center at the Cathedral Church of St. Andrew received an early Christmas gift from the Hawaii Community Foundation. 

The foundation awarded the wellness center a $10,000 grant to support the Swim With Your Current Program, which offers leadership and self-esteem classes for teen girls ages 12 to 15. 

Swim With Your Current is a strengths-based approach that encourages girls to know their worth, lead with vision and dare to make a difference. 

"Our program helps teen girls to counter trends towards self-doubt and find their voices," said Marcie Herring, director of the Kai Wellness Center.  "The fund gives us the opportunity to appreciate each other's cultural heritage, practice critical thinking and discover peaceful ways to resolve situations."

The program, which runs for eight weeks, is free for participants.
