we believe.

We believe that when we support teens' emotional wellbeing, they discover who they are, what they stand for, and their capacity to bring light and love to the world. We believe in the power of teens to impact their communities, one meaningful connection at a time.

Valo creates spaces where teens can get away from it all, feel independent, unplug, and have fun. A place of belonging for youth to have deep conversations and feel empowered as they ignite a future with hope.

Embers is our podcast. A hub of inspiration for both teens and adults. Embers is a place where our teens share their stories as they navigate the waters between childhood and adulthood. We realize they've got a lot to teach us—what they hope for sounds good to us, too.


Join us as our teens explore timely and compelling topics—fanning the embers burning in each of us.

Tune in here.
