WORKING WITH US

“This beautiful place has given me so much. I’ve learned so much, not only about teaching, mentoring, and leading, but about life. This place taught me to live mindfully, to really look at the world. My whole experience in this world has changed. My confidence has just blossomed too. I know the list goes on, but this has been the most valuable thing for me because it is something I have always struggled with. I’ve learned to love myself in an entirely new way. I hope that some day in the future I can give back in some way to this beautiful place. So I want to thank you for organizing such a loving, structured and playful environment.”
