The Body Project, run by Project Heal, is a body-acceptance based program designed to promote positive body image, focus on healthy eating, and discuss cultural messages around body image. The project has helped 3.5 million girls in 25 countries and has been used by many colleges and high schools including Riverdale. Guidance counselor Ms. Christina Young explained Riverdale’s interest in the program when she said, “We wanted to bring it in because so many of us struggle with accepting our bodies and our body image in the face of all the cultural messages we get about appearance.”
