Born and raised in California, we had the privilege to travel. Both of us, even before we met, developed a deep appreciation for the life-changing insights being confronted with other cultures can bring. We dealt with attitudes and perspectives that did not benefit us trying to have relationships with people different than us. As we continued to travel with our family, we recognized that schools do a great job of teaching content, but often struggle to develop the whole person. Our courses were born out of the desire to see young adults achieve their potential, not waiting for college graduation or success before understanding who they are and what a powerful impact they can make NOW, if they understand themselves, how to navigate relationships, and their purpose.
