HOW WE HELP
"If we fail to prepare, we prepare to fail."
In today's world, our youth's health is in crisis.
Chronic stress, anxiety, overwhelm, depression, exhaustion, and hopelessness have become an epidemic.
Our youth need a place to catch their breath, be still, recharge and see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Launch is a first of its kind in our community. We created Launch for high schoolers to master life skills and cultivate healthy habits before they launch into college, a gap year or the workforce. Launch is an empowerment hub for teens to develop these skills that will serve them for a lifetime.
It comes down to what you value and what values you hope to instill in your children.
At Launch, we value the skills that lead to a meaningful and thriving life. We value the skills that honor health and well-being. We value the skills that inspire acts of kindness and positive change. We value the skills that create community, connection, and compassion. We value skills that nurture innate strengths and talents. We value the skills that ignite new ideas and possibilities for a better tomorrow. We value the skills that bring people together to co-create, collaborate, and co-inspire. Mastering these skills is the path to a happy, healthy and thriving life.
