Grade 7 or 8
Identify personal fears and understand that everyone has them.
Commit to acting with courage to make your school a better place.
Deepen relationships with classmates to break down social barriers.
With loud music, high-energy facilitators and student leaders, we encourage kids to play, laugh and connect with one another.
Community-building activities designed to break down social barriers help foster stronger relationships among students.
Our Program Staff share personal stories centered on the value of the day. With humor and heart, they challenge kids to make a difference in their school.
Throughout the day, students meet in small groups, facilitated by high school or adult leaders, to process what they are learning and experiencing.
At the end of the retreat, students have a chance to stand up and commit to how they will live out the value of courage in their school community.
After the retreat, our follow-up videos, student evaluations (online only), classroom materials and posters help extend the impact of the retreat. View follow-up materials.
