What is

A Mastermind for Youth

A series of 12 weekly group zoom calls, tailor–made for young adults (age 12–19) just like you! Small groups – approximately four-six teens per session.

We meet weekly via Zoom for goal setting, accountability, physical wellness and learning new skills and emotional resources.

Course Objectives and Vision

For participants to assume 100% responsibility for their lives, set goals, take action, be accountable, autonomous and bold within the framework of a community.

Format: Structure of weekly zoom call
(60 minutes – start and end on time)

At the start of each week’s class, we set a timer for one minute of silence and intention setting for the hour ahead. This reinforces the practice to set a positive intention before the start of each new activity.

Each week students are introduced to new fitness workouts with demonstrations for proper form and technique. The assignments encourage the students to be active throughout the week and make movement a priority.  Assignments can range from walking, jogging, abdominal workouts, jump rope,  body weight exercises such as push ups and sit ups, and using free applications to complete structured workouts online.

During the personal check-in and goal setting portion of the course, each student sets three goals for the week and reports on what goals they accomplished from the prior week.  If they had challenges or did not complete the goals, we discuss the reasons why.  This weekly practice teaches the students how to properly set and verbally state their goals as well as how to be accountable to themselves and the group. 

Each week we focus on a new lesson from our 12 week syllabus.  The topics range from mindset to written communication and listening to your inner voice.  We present timely, engaging, relevant lessons followed by an explanation of learning lab exercises to be completed during the next seven days where students get to put the lessons into practice. Each Class participants discuss how they utilized the information from the prior week’s learning lab in their lives, discussing their personal experiences and building a community with their Future U peers.  These discussions are a favorite among the participants and facilitators.

Any remaining questions are answered during the last five minutes of class.  Students close the group with positive affirmations, words of encouragement or short fun group exercises.  The hour always ends on an uplifting, jovial and constructive note to set participants up for a successful week ahead.

Since his first session with the Future U, my son, Josh has shown increased energy and motivation! I really like how health and mental fitness is incorporated into the program. I live in the desert and to see my son inspired to run a few miles at 6:30AM is incredible!
As a single mother to a spirited teenage girl, I view Future U as a godsend during a challenging time! This program provides essential tools for self-reflection and motivation; which are welcomed more enthusiastically from outside the realm of the parent/child relationship.

The Future U is a program that assists you in improving yourself and your lifestyle to explore and get and to know yourself better. The program has a high emphasis on goal setting, healthier life choices. Some ways are exercise, nutrition and hydration.

The Future U is fantastic! Tara and Carolyn really know what they’re doing. The program not only helped me get organized in my daily life, it helped me academically. Learning how to take mindful breaks and recenter myself was extremely beneficial for my schoolwork, and goal setting taught me to be more self accountable.
Los Angeles
I have noticed that my son seems to be following through on his goals for the week which is great. I particularly liked his goal to help me out more with our recent camping trip. He jumped right in and set up the tents, inflated floaties for the lake, helped with cooking and was the s’more maker supreme. Thanks for all the good work. I think these are all good lessons for navigating life.

Trust Your Intuition and Take Positive Action

This week is all about learning how to listen to our powerful, sixth sense, our intuition, gut and heart.  We will teach the students how to capitalize on using this powerful tool in daily life and how tapping into our intuition can help us make better decisions and guide us toward the right, positive-action steps.

Effective communication with the written word!  How to write and structure professional emails, letters, notes in order to communicate ideas, goals and desired outcomes with confidence, ease and simplicity.
