WHICH PROGRAM WILL EMPOWER YOU?

Our Mission with the "i am T.U.F.F" Programs is to celebrate and empower the creative thinker through self-awareness, information, inspiration and guidance in hopes of creating a balanced, healthy and productive future.

YOUTH ENRICHMENT PROGRAM

We all know how scary and confusing it is, being a child or teenager, trying to fit and belong. The importance of understanding this issue and having conversations about it, is a strong focus in all of our workshops. 

 

Our workshops are designed to help our participants discover their potential by introducing them to new ideas, interactive activities and empowerment exercises. This process will challenge and help develop their cognitive thinking and decision making skills, while keeping it fun, interactive and interesting. This self-realization at a younger age is valuable for self-confidence, our hope is to lead our participants to a happy, productive and more balanced life.

These workshops are offered as after school and community center programs and are grouped separately for a more relevant and realistic approach.
