The Valo Experience

On our transformational retreats, we create a space where teens from a cross-section of communities come together. They connect meaningfully with each other and tend to their emotional wellbeing.

Time at Valo means:

  • unplugging from devices

  • connecting in real conversations

  • playing epic games (sardines to spoons)

  • sharing meals

  • walking in nature

  • seeing and being seen

  • cultivating lasting friendships

When they move beyond Valo, teens carry what they have learned and go on to impact their communities beyond Valo.

The Valo Approach

Valo teens become emotionally resilient adults ready to meet a changing world.


They develop lifelong skills to:

  • communicate with authenticity

  • listen with compassion

  • act with intention


How? During our weekend retreats,

school programs, and conference workshops, Valo's experienced guides foster:


  • connection to self and others

  • empathy and understanding

  • a sense of belonging and mattering
