ABOUT THE STATION
A 501(c)(3) non-profit with the belief that all young adults deserve to feel empowered and prepared for real life.
To empower young adults with the fundamental life-skills they're not taught in school.
Future generations of healthy, generative, responsible and on-purpose leaders who are inspired to create a meaningful impact in the world.
Provide kick-ass social and experiential learning experiences to high school and college students by connecting them to industry leading experts through innovative classes, programs, and mentorship opportunities.
One must understand their purpose and passionately pursue that purpose. Turns out, doing what we love makes us happy!
Having the requisite knowledge to pursue one's purpose or professional interest does not equate to success or happiness in that pursuit. There is so much more to life that impacts our likelihood of success. Knowing the skills to care for yourself, your family, your finances, and your community all play a role in being successful & happy.
Maintaining a healthy body is key to long lasting sustainable success. It impacts every area of our life.
We can go fast by ourselves, but we go further with each other. Having healthy, authentic relationships present new opportunities for us to build powerful connections that amplify our growth.

THE LEARNING MODEL
What happens when a flipped classroom meets professional development to create real world action
Students have busy lives, this is why curriculum is initially delivered at home on students own time. Curriculum consists of video guides, lectures, reference articles, and additional reading assignments. Students are asked to take their own notes and document their own thoughts on the lessons learned.
We learn best by doing so all classes and programs are designed for students to spend hands on time developing, practicing and implementing lessons learned. This could range from setting up bank or retirement accounts, practicing movement and mindfulness exercises, creating a business, conducting mock interviews, practicing culinary skills, going on a grocery shopping trip, etc.
During “class” students share their key takeaways from the curriculum and how it applies to them. This allows for learning to occur through shared experience while accelerating the learning process and building communication skills for participants
As a data driven organization, we believe in the power of feedback cycles to drive growth. All classes and programs have built in peer and facilitator feedback loops. This set container for constructive feedback focuses on individual and group performance to enhance collaboration and further develop healthy peer to peer communication.
