· Somewhere in between
· A parent wanting the absolute best for your child
And you’ve said YES to any of these questions, then The Tribe is for you!
The Tribe is an online community specifically geared towards creating a space for teenagers to go deeper into finding themselves, connecting with other teenagers outside of their usual social circles, building self confidence based on a strong internal foundation, feeling empowered to overcome obstacles, and discovering their passions in order to lead successful and engaged lives.
Why do we need The Tribe?
Over the last 15 years of working in the educational system, I noticed that there was a huge need for teenagers to have a space where they could feel safe to open up about their struggles, questions, fears, and dreams. They were missing a space where they could connect with teenagers who are going through similar experiences, but beyond their daily social circles and space where they don’t feel isolated and alone, but instead supported and encouraged.
Our schools are supposed to be a place where they can do this, yet not every student finds that teacher they connect with or a group where they feel completely accepted. And lets be honest, school is school and the achievement system it is built upon makes the concept of opening up to adults contradictory, especially when it feels as though doing and saying “right things” will affect your grade.
In addition, while parents are a wonderful and important support system and guide for their children, we know that there are topics that many children don’t feel comfortable talking to their parents about.
How will The Tribe be different?
I have been fortunate to work in the educational field for the past 15 years in various states with a variety of ages and backgrounds. Though I enjoy working with students of all ages, I feel most passionate about working with teenagers and young adults. The teenage years are the best and the worst times, and sometimes both all at once.
Over the past few years, my focus with teenagers has shifted to introducing them to tools from Sport Psychology, Yoga, and Mindfulness so that they can build a practice (Mind, Body, and Spirit) that will serve them the rest of their lives.
These tools help them to overcome anxiety, to face challenges with confidence, perform optimally in the classroom, on the field, or on the stage, and to live a creative life driven by passion, curiosity, and purpose.
Very few schools teach our students about balance and wellness from this perspective. The Tribe takes away the pressure of grades and having to achieve a specific outcome. The members are able to engage in the material in a judgment free zone with the only goal of bettering their own well being. Being able to create a practice at this pivotal point in development will serve the student for the rest of their life.
So how does The Tribe work?
The Tribe utilizes different technology mediums such as Facebook groups, conference calls, and YouTube. The primary platform will be a closed Facebook group that only members can access and post to. In the group, daily questions, affirmations, challenges, and resources will be posted for the members to interact with. Each week, there will be Live Facebook office hours where members can write in questions and get direct feedback. In addition, there will be one group coaching call where members will have a number to call in to and receive one-on-one coaching while also listening to the feedback other members are receiving. If a member is not available during the specific office hours or coaching call times, they can submit any questions they have ahead of time so that they can still be answered and a recording of the call will be posted. And because we want to build our lifelong wellness practice using different modalities, each month there will be either a video or audio recording guiding members through a Yoga sequence, guided mediation, visualization exercise, etc. In addition, the forum is always open for when any member needs to share or get a little extra support from the Tribe.
