Our programs help teenagers cultivate healthy habits, self-confidence, and leadership skills.

The Center for Adolescent Resiliency (CAR) provides a caring environment in which middle-school and high-school students can develop healthy academic, social, and physical habits.

The Center's three programs—Transforming Through Transformation, United Future Leaders, and the Covenant BodyMind Initiative (CBMI)—offer teenagers the opportunity to participate in a wide range of activities, interacting with each other and members of the the community.

Participants build strong relationships with mentors and role models, preparing them for high school, college, and adult responsibilities. These transformative experiences help teenagers acquire strong character traits that stay with them throughout their lives.

The Center for Adolescent Resiliency programs are:

  • Covenant BodyMind Initiative: Available to middle-school and high-school students, this 16-week program (one hour per week) provides education in resiliency and wellness. Participants learn about nutrition, relationships, body image, physical safety, emotional security, and other issues.
  • United Future Leaders: This after-school program focuses on civility, ethics, and leadership for fifth grade students as they prepare to transition to middle school. Participants gain a strong foundation for individual growth and self-awareness that becomes a springboard for servant leadership throughout the secondary school years and beyond.
  • Transforming Through Transition: This new program prepares middle-school students to make a successful transition to high school. It integrates the leadership and wellness principles of the BodyMind Initiative and United Future Leaders programs.
