Mission Statement

Youth Frontiers is a nonprofit, non-partisan organization that partners with schools to build positive communities where students thrive socially, emotionally and academically. Our vision is to change the way kids treat each other in every hallway, lunch line and classroom of every school in America.

Description

We take a whole grade level of students away from the distractions of a normal school day for a retreat designed to give all students the chance to feel what school would be like if everyone was respected. We do this by creating a fun atmosphere right away in the morning, welcoming students with loud music and high-energy activities that immediately break down social barriers between students. Our goal is to encourage students to take positive risks and have fun together. Throughout the day our retreat staff shares personal stories centered on the values of the day- kindness, courage, respect or responsibility. Three times throughout the day students are engaged in small-group discussion led by area high school students/ community members/ or parents. By the end of the day, students have an opportunity to stand up and share with their peers how they will live out the value of the day.
