Valuable if you...

  • are not as good at setting goals and following through on them as you'd like

  • aren't comfortable talking with people you don't know or who are different from you (or are in positions of authority)

  • don't deal well with unclear situations or tasks

  • don't really feel self-confident in new or stressful situations

  • aren't really clear about how to even begin to think about or plan for your future

  • the Foundation groups are 7-10 people between the ages of 15-20 who are committed to getting better at the same things that you are

What you'll do...

  • each group is led by 2 coaches. One focuses on making sure members of the group understand and feel comfortable using the tools and skills they are learning. The other focuses on developing each member's level of comfort with themselves and in interacting with others. 

  • groups meet for 4 hours once a week for 7 weeks. There are plenty of breaks and the experience is 

Despite the genuine best efforts of teachers and school administrators, the reality seems to be that far too many kids are simply unprepared for the high level of self-management and tolerance for ambiguity that the 21st century requires.

  • classes are fun and entertaining - we don't like to be bored and we assume that you don't either!

  • groups meet for 4 hours once a week for 7 weeks. Yay, that sounds like a lot, but trust us, you'll want to keep coming back.

  • you'll enjoy the time you spend with the group

  • you'll be challenged, but on stuff that you actually care about getting better at

What we promise...

  • you'll leave the program feeling much more in control of your life and all the things you have to get done

  • you'll be heard. This one is huge for us: this program - and everything we do - isn't about us, it's about you. If something doesn't make sense to you or you don't see how to apply it in your life, we'll give you a different tool or approach to try. What matters most is not that you understand our approach, but tat we understand - and respond to - your needs.
