Welcome to October everyone! As the leaves begin to change colors and the temperatures begin to dip, that only means one thing in Minnesota—it’s hockey season! That’s right, our Minnesota Wild kick off the 2016-2017 regular season on Thursday night, October 13 in St. Louis against the Blues.
Innovative Office Solutions is the proud sponsor of the Minnesota Wild Charity of the Month Program. This program brings exposure to a different Minnesota Charity each month throughout the NHL season. The Minnesota Wild Charity of the Month for October 2016 is Youth Frontiers.
Youth Frontiers | Retreats that Build Positive School Community
Youth Frontiers is based on the premise that today’s youth are tomorrow’s leaders. Youth Frontiers is building a better tomorrow by inspiring students to live lives of character. A young person’s character shapes their destiny and impacts their community. Research shows that students with high social/emotional learning and character skills perform better academically and take responsibility for the culture of their school.
Youth Frontier’s mission is to partner with schools to build better communities where students thrive socially, emotionally and academically. They offer character-building retreats focused on values like kindness, courage and respect. Youth Frontiers reaches kids at critical ages (fourth-12th grades) and provides dynamic experiences that enhance self-awareness, empathy and connectedness.
Through play, music, small groups, presentations, sharing and follow-up materials, Youth Frontiers gives students the chance to experience a learning environment where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. They also offer retreats for educators to help schools support their staff and create cohesive teams all focused in a common direction: their students.
Since 1987, Youth Frontiers has reached more than 1.6 million students and educators. 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 can make tomorrow’s world a better place.
Innovative Office Solutions is proud to sponsor Youth Frontiers in partnership with the Minnesota Wild as the October charity of the month! Check out the Innovative Community Programs Page and see how your organization could benefit!
