ForeverU offers a hybrid, three-phase personal development experience that empowers students grade 7-12 on their journey of mental health and wellness.

The exciting new program model we've created is set to launch in early March. Please join our program waitlist to be the first to know about program updates, registration dates, and more.

No matter where our students come from, we help them elevate their potential at school, at home, and in life.

Whether a student is battling depression, experiencing bullying at school, navigating a difficult home life, trying to manage their anxiety, or something in between, we give them the tools to show the world what they're made of.

 

Emotional

Intelligence

We help students better manage their thoughts and emotions through practices built on mindfulness and self-awareness.

Character

Development

We help students develop a growth mindset that leads to a life of resilience, confidence, and positive decision making.

Personal

Achievement

We help students establish a sense of order and structure in their life through strategic goal setting techniques and exercises.

Become a Mentor

Mentors have the responsibility of supporting students during their ForeverU experience. The intention of integrating mentors into our program is to provide young adults with the opportunity to "be the person they needed when they were younger". Mentors also help us ensure that the students we serve through our programs feel encouraged, valued, and supported during their time in ForeverU.

 

ForeverU mentors are assigned no more than (5) students and have the responsibility of leading them through our self-discovery curriculum on the the first and third week of each month. All materials used to facilitate these monthly online meetings can be downloaded directly from our website.​

After an application is submitted, it will be reviewed by our Program Committee that consists of vetted mental health professionals. This process usually takes 2-3 weeks. If accepted, next steps will include a background check and screening process, online mentor orientation, and completing our online training program in partnership with Silver Oaks Behavioral Hospital.
