I-Tri, a fitness and empowerment program for sixth-grade girls usually held during the school year, announced Monday it would for the first time hold a summer program this year, dubbed I-Tri Girls Nights.

Five weeks of virtual sessions, every Monday from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., will begin on June 29. Any girls entering sixth, seventh, or eighth grade, regardless of the school they attend, can enroll. The empowerment discussions will include role models, self-care, affirmation, and stress management; the fitness sessions will include yoga, dance, Pilates, and meditation. Mary Cain, a professional runner, will lead an activity.

After it took its regular program online in March, I-Tri "immediately recognized the importance of staying connected and providing enhanced mental health supports for adolescents during these difficult times," it said in a statement. "That is why we are proud to announce our brand-new summer program that will reach and aid girls who are feeling disconnected, during the recovery period and beyond."

The program is free, though donations of $45 will be welcomed. Former I-Tri participants are encouraged to attend. Registration is online at
