I am so grateful that my daughter was able to be a part of The Courage Project. She was able to succeed at trying something new, even it it was a bit intimidating at first. I was so proud of her, but more importantly, she was proud of herself. It was a wonderful experience!

I have such a great appreciation for this program! As a teacher I love the message of being couragous and being mindful of the present challenges. Being a courage coach myself I have learned so much from this program and the children involved. The Courage Project is a beautiful mixture of facing the inner challenges we all face with the greatness of experiencing outdoor activities.

The outdoors creates meaningful experiences that helps kids break out of their shell and be confident in themselves. I’ve seen kids grow So much in one day through play,new experiences and learning to be mindful and aware of their feelings and emotions.
