our programs.

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.
