(This amendment adds $226,903 the second year from the general fund to the nonprofit organization, I'm Just Me Movement in Winchester, Virginia for their new program, Resilience Rising, to help students build resilience skills and give them strategies to cope with anxiety and depression. This program is targeted at children in Winchester City Public Schools in grades K-12 who have experienced adverse childhood experiences and are at risk for unhealthy decisions and/or involvement with law enforcement. The program proposes to serve 50 students per day. It will serve as a source for educational support for students who are engaged in virtual learning and program personnel will ensure that students are logged in during school time and doing their assignments. When school requirements have been met, students will rotate through art, theater, sports, and social/life skills. Participants in the program will also be paired with a trained adult mentor to help build resilience by creating another positive relationship with a caring adult.)
