Boys on the Run

Boys Run – I toowú klatseen

In Tlingit, the Boys Run program is called I toowú klatseen, or “strength of spirit.”  This is a 10-week after school program of running, discussion and cultural activities that honor Southeast Alaska’s languages and traditional values. 3rd-5th grade boys will gain the strength they need to build healthy relationships and create a community of respect for themselves and others.

This curriculum was developed in partnership between AWARE and Sitkans Against Family Violence. For more information or to become a coach contact Kirk Burke at 586-4902 or
