i-tri is an inclusive, immersive, community-based program that fosters self-respect, personal empowerment, self-confidence, positive body image and healthy lifestyle choices for adolescent girls. i-tri trains them to complete a youth-distance triathlon as a metaphor for life’s journey, giving them the opportunity to set seemingly impossible goals and helping them gain the tools to achieve those goals. Along their journey to the finish line, girls build confidence, and find their power physically, mentally and emotionally. i-tri girls learn to believe in themselves, and that can change everything.
i-tri focuses on working with middle-school girls because research shows that the largest drop in self-esteem occurs during early adolescence. 69% of elementary school-aged girls reported being “happy the way I am.” That figure plummets to 29% for high school girls. The original pilot program consisted of 8 Middle School girls at Springs School in East Hampton, NY. 11 years later, i-tri has grown to serve over 700 girls from 11 school districts and continues to grow as we prepare for a National Expansion.
