About the Center for Adolescent Resiliency

CAR programs actively cultivate the self-esteem, self-care, and self-leadership youth need in order to successfully integrate into their academic and social environments. Students are empowered to thrive as individuals but also as members of culturally and developmentally diverse communities.

CAR programs utilize curricula which foster positive and sustainable change within student and the school culture. This change is recognized through:

  • Self-efficacy for learning
  • Self-efficacy for comprehensive wellness
  • Self-efficacy for leadership
Covenant BodyMind Initiative

The Covenant BodyMind Initiative (CBMI) is committed to developing and improving resilience, promoting and empowering self-care, and educating and supporting wellness in youth by providing experiential school activities, family resources, and community involvement.
