More than 100 young women attended i-tri’s annual mentoring day at the East Hampton Middle School on Saturday, April 6. Led by 42 registered i-tri mentors, the activities were centered around the day’s theme, “The Future is Female.” The mentors held self-esteem workshops and shared expertise in their own careers. A networking session was included to allow additional time for the girls to connect with a mentor of their choice.

Based on Eastern Long Island, i-tri is a community-based program for adolescent girls that works through a curriculum based upon physical fitness, nutrition, and self-esteem. The organization strives to affirm respect, responsibility, and teamwork, and utilizes the sport of triathlon to foster dedication. For more information, visit
