Since 1987 Youth Frontiers, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization based in Minneapolis, has been delivering programs to build positive school communities that help young people realize the importance of respecting themselves and others. Their vision is to change the way young people treat each other in every hallway, lunch line and classroom of every school in America so that today’s young people make tomorrow’s world better. Last year, Youth Frontiers worked with more than 110,000 students and educators throughout the country.

On the Courage Retreat, the Youth Frontiers retreat staff focused on creating a more positive school community by engaging students in a variety of activities that built students’ empathy skills and teach safe ways to help prevent bullying.
