Find The Courage Programs

“It was an amazing experience that showed how changing the world is easier than we think.”

FTC 5-Lesson Program:

The FTC Program has been implemented with high school and middle school students throughout a week of class (health, advisory, etc.). These 5 lessons are approximately 45 minutes long.

The FTC program allows students to better realize their opportunity to impact people positively on a daily basis, gain awareness of peer-to-peer mistreatment, and learn diverse strategies to make a positive impact when people are being mistreated. Ultimately, FTC helps students gain an understanding of their own leadership, impact and resilience capabilities.

Throughout the program students will partake in small and large group discussion, personal reflection, journaling, conflict-resolution role-playing, reading, drawings, as well as have access to videos, lectures and guest speakers. On the final day of the program students will present their final project; this finale is a meaningful day where students creatively inspire classmates to be kind, inclusive, encouraging, compassionate, respectful and/or resilient through film, art, poetry, song, performance, testimonial, etc.

FTC College Mentor Program:

This program empowers college student volunteers to teach the FTC Program to local 3rd graders. College student-volunteers train in FTC workshops in order to be prepared to teach the program to a local 3rd grade classroom.  From there,  these college FTC mentors team up with a local 3rd counselor and/or teacher to help teach the FTC program approximately ten times, throughout the year.

FTC 6-Hour Workshops:

The FTC 5-Lesson Program can be implemented with college, high school and middle school students in a 1-day 6 hour workshop  as well as two, 3-hour FTC workshops. Just like in the FTC 5-lesson program, the workshops empower students to better realize their opportunity to impact people positively on a daily basis, gain awareness of peer-to-peer mistreatment, and learn diverse strategies to make a positive impact when people are being mistreated. Ultimately, FTC helps students gain an understanding of their own leadership, impact and resilience capabilities.
