Our youth training programs are delivered in partnership with Seeds Training.
Developing proactive learners and responsible leaders.
Our programs are the difference between a good education and a great education.
Real world success comes when preparation meets opportunity. How can we be sure that our young people are prepared when opportunity knocks?
We must give them formal education, life experiences and diversified training so that they feel confident enough in their skills to seize an opportunity. For most, the formal education is already happening. What we provide is some of the life experience and plenty of diversified training. We do it all in a safe environment so they can practice without the fear of making mistakes, promoting them to make progress quickly. Every level of our training is designed by brain-based and experiential experts who know how to make learning relevant, memorable and super engaging. Our trainers are professionals with massive experience and diverse backgrounds who know how to challenge students, role model with integrity and make learning way more fun than you would expect.

For Ages 9 to 12
The Star Series is about learning, having fun and developing good habits at an early age. These two-day events can be held during the school day or on the weekends. They are packed with dynamic learning challenges that are both engaging and educational. Each day is focused on a single theme to ensure that the message is clear and can be applied. Every Star Series event is designed to develop both the academic and social/emotional capacities of the students. The four events are themed as follows:
Purple Star - Creativity and the Learning Styles
Blue Star - Teamwork and Problem Solving
Red Star - Communication and Relationships
Green Star - Commitment and Goal Setting
Upon graduation from each event, the students receive certificates and colored stars/badges to celebrate their accomplishment.
For Ages 13 to 18
The Teen Training Programs are designed to supplement the traditional educational experience by giving teens upgraded skills that are not covered in school. All four of our dynamic programs focus on three core areas of development: life skills, learning-to-learn tools and leadership capabilities.
These programs are delivered by experienced trainers who utilize proven, effective methods for getting great results in accelerated time-frames. Learning is fun, fast, immersive and life-changing. Most importantly, the results are lasting and give teens measurable advantages in school and life.
