Resilient Horizons offers two versions of our custom program: Roll With The Changes.

Elementary School Program: targets students in grades 2-5 and uses developmentally appropriate media to convey our five core resiliency skills.

Middle School Program: adapted to a more mature audience and includes magic, and videos to impart our message in an engaging format.

Resilient Horizons empowers adults to foster resiliency skills in today’s youth. Our staff provides either half or full-day resiliency training programs that are tailored to meet the needs of your school or organization.

Participants receive an overview of key resiliency concepts with an emphasis on five core resiliency skills. These skills serve as a modern-day “tool kit” to equip individuals to adapt to roll with the challenges of life.

Into The Vortex: A Tale of Resiliency by John Poidevant

Into the Vortex: A Tale of Resiliency is intended to impart a resiliency mindset to students in grades 6-9 via an adventure novel based on a 12-year-old’s underwater entrapment in a cavern. This is the age when suicidal ideation begins to creep into the minds of our youth.

SYNOPSIS
Kayden Barret is not your typical 12-year-old. His life is rocked by tragedy and the challenges are only beginning! Kayden endures the greatest heartbreak any twelve-year-old can face, yet somehow manages to survive. The call of the wild is part of Kayden’s healing, and his paddling trip down the Opa River changes his life forever. His close group of friends is tested by one calamity after another.

The sudden disappearance of Kayden shocks everyone on the trip. Missing for hours, the team sets upon a desperate rescue plan that might just save Kayden’s life. Kayden’s ability to adapt and survive is put to his greatest test yet. He and his friends call upon every resource at their disposal to survive the horrific events that unfold on the Opa River.
