a gathering of valo guides and leadership

Each year, we set aside two days for the valo guides to head on a retreat of their own...


Together we talked about how we can best support the mental wellbeing of valo teens and immerse them in meaningful conversations. We explored ways we can empower them to bring their learnings and skills into the world–lighting up their communities with empathy, connection, and hope.


We shared our hopes for the year ahead and considered ways each valo group will put its own spin on meaningful experiences.


The time together left us lifted and ready to dive into retreats with teens in the coming months!
