We are currently recruiting volunteers for the I’m Thumbody Program for the 2021-2022 school year. I’m Thumbody is delivered to grade 3 students across PEI to teach children the importance of self-esteem and positive mental health. It is delivered over two 1-hour classroom engaging sessions to help the student recognize their uniqueness, identify their emotions and regulate their behaviour through games, activities, and discussions.
