Resilient. Emotionally aware. Creative. Vulnerable. Kind. It’s how we want to be and what we strive to model. This feels especially important in our current pandemic culture of social isolation.
We use group conversation, time to ourselves, journaling, creating and being in community to foster meaningful relationships with ourselves and one another. Valo teens tell us that they feel new confidence in their ideas, greater comfort in sharing them, and an increased capacity to listen. They feel a sense of belonging. Their relationships are stronger. They know themselves better. And they feel a readiness to bring light and love to the world.
Meet one weekend every other month to connect, create, and center with other teens. These youth are charged to go out into their communities with a true sense of how to connect.
A weekend retreat filled with spontaneous play, meaningful conversation, kitchen adventures, messy creating, time outside, and space to center.
Valo offers hands-on, in-school retreats where teens connect in a real way and emerge feeling a sense of belonging. Each program is tailored to the needs of the individual school.
