$100 –  one month of online resources for FORTitude for Parents seminar
$250 –  two 30-minute unique FORTitude workshop experiences

The FORT is a community space outside of school where teens connect and grow strong together. We offer an accepting environment that fosters new friendships and gives teens tools and skills through workshops in the arts, mindfulness, equine/canine experiences and more. These workshops help restore calm, purpose, self-esteem and resilience so teens leave feeling more connected and hopeful with tools they can use to better deal with the ups and downs of life. We also offer concurrent workshops for parents that coach adults on parenting topics related to building resilience as a family.

 

FORTitude is our online program, delivered via our social channels  and video conferencing to both teens and parents, with a commitment towards positive, resilience-based content and workshops to keep you connected and strong as we navigate these times together. Our FORT workshop leaders, Sources of Strength trainers, board members, friends and community partners are coming together to collaborate and support all of YOU as we emphasize that we are STRONGER TOGETHER.

 

Sources of Strength training is offered to groups of teens and adults within Loudoun County Public Schools and throughout the Loudoun County community free of charge. Source of Strength is an evidence-based program focused on upstream prevention by building protective factors, encouraging positive, help-seeking behavior and stronger peer-to-peer and peer-to-adult connections. We make this training available to any youth or adult group interested in learning coping skills including Scouts, sports teams, parent groups and other community organizations.

 

The Acceptance of Others Award is a peer nominated $1000 scholarship that recognizes students who demonstrate consistent and outstanding

- Acts of generosity and compassion to students who struggle

- Displays of great kindness and/or empathy

- Sustained (without motive) acts of unselfishness

 

 

 

Mission

To increase teen resilience and prevent youth suicide through awareness, upstream educational programs and activities that support and empower youth, families and the community-at-large. Foundation programs are focused on building acceptance, connection and hope.

Profile

Our programs are entirely focused on upstream suicide prevention for youth by addressing behavioral and mental health challenges through connection, acceptance, teaching coping skills and fostering a positive mindset so day to day challenges don't overwhelm teens to a point of crisis.
