The Character Movement

To Our Educators

Every year, Thanksgiving offers us the opportunity to thank people who have made a difference in our lives. While there are countless individuals who deserve thanking and praise, Youth Frontiers would like to thank one group in particular today…


We asked our Retreat Staff about the teachers they are are grateful for. In this spirit, we invite you to think of an educator who has impacted your life.

While sharing gratitude is as much a Thanksgiving tradition as turkey and mashed potatoes, we often forget that gratefulness itself does not need to be seasonal. The questions we ask and discussions we have on Thanksgiving are ones that we can think about and share every day. Whether you choose to honor someone who has helped you, write a note to a friend or share a gift with someone who encourages you, remember that giving thanks can be a year long practice.
