Top Five Moments from Our 2016 Ethical Leadership Luncheon

For eight years, Youth Frontiers has hosted its Ethical Leadership Luncheon, an event with Minnesota’s brightest leaders on fostering character in our communities today and building the next generation of ethical leaders. We had a wonderful time last Friday swapping inspiring stories and experienced insights over a shared meal at the Marriott City Center in Minneapolis. We’ve rounded up our top five favorite moments to remind all who attended and those who couldn’t make it of what it’s like to be in character-filled community as we approach the holidays.READ MORE

Play at Youth Frontiers

Play Works

By Sarah Barchus, Communications Specialist at Youth Frontiers

At Youth Frontiers, we love to embrace our inner child and exercise play, an activity sorely underestimated in our workaholic culture. With “achiever” as one of my top five strengths, I get it; using time, one of our most precious and unrecoverable resources, during the workday to have a chat, joke around, maybe even have a little dance party – a regular occurrence at YF – can seem counterproductive. Happily, research has shown and we have experienced that in fact, the opposite is true.READ MORE

Deb and her daughter

Dancing to Her Own Beat

By Deb Peterson, Youth Frontiers’ Office Manager

There are things in life that people tell you are hard – learning a language, climbing a mountain, parenting… Why didn’t I believe them when they said that about parenting?

I had seen friends and family struggle at times with their kids, so I knew I’d encounter some bumps while parenting, but I thought they would be few and far between. Any daughter of mine would follow her parents’ rules, just as I did (for the most part) when I was a child. I imagined my family would be like those on TV – we’d love each other so much that any problems we had would be resolved within an hour and replaced with hugs and laughter. Ha! Now I know how naïve I was.READ MORE
