Imagine a community where enemies find their common ground and make peace; where friends heal past hurts and make amends; where young people ignite their passion for service and leadership; where adults and youth alike join hands to create a community where everyone feels safe, loved, and celebrated.

We are putting on 3 separate workshops called Challenge Day. March 12, 13 & 14th pick a day. Challenge Days is a 6 1/2-hour program, created to build connection and empathy, and to fulfill the vision that every child lives in a world where they feel safe, loved, and celebrated.
