"A tree is known by the fruit it bears..."


We believe that just as a tree is known by the fruit it bears,  a company is known by its' staff.  

Our staff are our most prized possession. Our team is a group of amazing individuals who not only provide thoughtful programming but create an amazing youth-centered culture that intentionally goes beyond the norm. We recruit the best, train the best and expect the best.  Our combined years of youth programming spans over 150 years and counting.  From previous college advisers and teachers to knowledgeable public service personnel and clinical psychologists, our team is a think tank.
