Our team

We have applied a reflective and integrated approach to offer a half-day program and a four-week program. By holding up a mirror to our own experiences from childhood to adolescence to adulthood, and drawing on evidence-based wellbeing and developmental theories and strategies, our programs offer teens a pathway to thrive in life.
