Negative Body Image is being addressed at Boys & Girls Clubs of Edinburg RGV

Club members at Boys & Girls Clubs of Edinburg RGV are taking part in Stay SMART, a prevention education program that provides knowledge, skills, self-esteem, and peer support to help teens make healthy choices, practice responsible behaviors, avoid using drug and alcohol and postpone sexual activity.  This program includes special sessions aimed at addressing negative body image in young people.

Struggling with body image is an unfortunate symptom of growing up. As youth face the uphill battle of making friends, defining their personality and getting an education, they must also juggle the stressful and often irrational ideas of what they should look like.

Many teenagers feel overweight, underweight, pale, pimply or simply ugly.  A young person’s mind is fragile enough as it is — add in body image anxiety, and it can become a detriment that steers them down a grim path.

Often, to cope with the self-esteem issues of negative body image, teens abuse drugs or engage in binge drinking. They may do so in order to:

  • Escape from feelings of low self-worth and depression
  • Increase confidence
  • Establish social contacts
  • Win approval from peers
  • Mimic the perceived attributes of “attractive” people (i.e. “fitting in”)
  • Lose inhibitions

In addition to escaping from or offsetting negative feelings, teens may experiment with drugs and alcohol in an effort to directly address body issues.

“Doubts and insecurities can become overwhelming when a teenager stares into a mirror,” said Program Supervisor Krystal Escobar.   “In all too many cases, this crippling feeling leads to self-destructive habits such as drug addiction. We must equipped our teens with tools to help them cope.”

This program fills a pressing need and is a part of TEXSYN – The Texas Statewide Youth Services Network in Partnership with the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services RESOURCES and Boys & Girls Club Texas Alliance.

Since 1969, the Boys & Girls Club has played an integral role in the Edinburg community, providing daily programs and services to over 18,000 young people.  During the School year the Club is open Monday – Friday, 3:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. and during the summer the hours are 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.  On all ECISD holidays and teachers work days the Legacy Center is open 7:30 am – 5:30 p.m.  The Club has moved its main site and administration to its new building the Legacy Center located at 702 Cullen Street (Rogers and 281). The Club offers programs that emphasize character and leadership development, education and career development, health and life skills, the arts, and sport, fitness and recreation.
