Is an ancient Zulu greeting that means “I see you.”

Not just the clothes you’re wearing or the style of your hair or the color of your skin but also your hopes, your dreams, your history, your choices, your fears, your doubts, your potential…

I see you.

This last year, we launched our first ever Resiliency Course. The success is beyond what we could ever imagine. We have just finished our 10th class and students are reporting an increase in connectedness, happiness, perseverance, optimism and engagement.

It has been a privilege to serve so many students and their families. To do something that hasn’t ever been done before–to break the therapy model and provide mental health opportunities for teens in need that can’t afford it. And while we have challenged you to not hide from the greatness that is in you, you have also challenged us to do the same.

That is why we are excited to announce that after many months of work, Pivot Adventure is now officially a Nonprofit.

This door is going to help us reach more teens and families in need, open new adventure programs, more scholarship opportunities, and hopefully, someday build a facility/refuge for teens.

There is still plenty of work to do. The number one cause of death for teens in Utah is suicide. Every passing moment is a chance to turn it all around though. We can’t do this without you. We need you.

For those going through the unimaginable, hang on. We see you. We are coming.
