Workshops

Teen Leadership Training

  • Teens, ages 13-17
  • Students are awarded full scholarships (attendance is at no cost to students)
  • Two days (Saturday-Sunday)
  • Location: primarily throughout the United States (Southern California and Massachusetts)

The Torch Foundation offers transformational leadership workshops for teens, ages 13-17. The two-day workshops are tailored to the unique interests and needs of teens, and they provide a safe, engaging, and inspirational environment for profound self-discovery and growth.

Through carefully guided exercises and activities, the teens will 1) discover their maximum potential; 2) identify the limiting beliefs and other obstacles that are stopping them from achieving their potential, and 3) learn effective ways to overcome those obstacles. The powerful tools and skills gained through this experience will allow the teens to transform their lives and create unlimited possibilities for themselves, their families, and the world.

The workshop is both interactive and personalized, so each workshop will take on the unique qualities of the participants. Generally, the topics that are discussed include: 

  • Dreams, goals
  • School, grades
  • Relationships (family, friends, etc)
  • Integrity, responsibility, accountability
  • Consequences of actions
  • Self-control
  • Conflict resolution
  • Communication skills, listening skills
  • Forgiveness, compassion
  • Limiting beliefs

The Torch Foundation partners with donors, sponsors, and organizations such as schools, youth centers, and other community organizations, so that the workshops can be provided completely free of charge to teens. Currently, the workshops are offered primarily in Southern California and Massachusetts, but they can be organized anywhere in the United States or abroad.

If you are interested in partnering with The Torch Foundation to organize a training in your area, please contact us for further details.
