What Sets Momentum Apart

Momentum is more than just a gap experience; it's an empowering journey designed to offer a unique and enriching alternative to other therapy options. What truly sets us apart is our dedication to helping young adults succeed, not by society's standards, but by your own definitions of success.

While adventure is at the core of our program, we provide a rounded experience of activities, including yoga, culinary lessons, gardening, meditation, and more. Our comprehensive approach goes beyond adventure programming. We equip young adults with essential life skills, resilience, and personal success skills, all within a supportive community.


At Momentum, our entire community is united by a shared objective: personal growth. We truly empathize with the obstacles that young adults can face today. Here young adults are building community with like-minded peers, embracing the opportunity to explore uncharted territories and embark on new adventures.

We provide students the time they need to dig into their self-discovery and growth. At Momentum, we believe in empowering individuals to embrace their full potential, preparing them for a thriving future with a newfound sense of purpose and inner strength.

Ready to embark on a journey to become more independent, self-reliant, and equipped with essential coping skills? Watch to discover firsthand stories of transformation and learn to be there for yourself and others. Explore the power of mindfulness and forming deep, meaningful connections.

What Can Momentum Offer You?

Momentum offers our students challenge-by-choice, allowing you to set the pace of your journey and confront challenges on your own terms. We’re here to help you address the patterns in your life that no longer serve your personal growth.

“There is a challenge. It's not going to be easy. It is going to be difficult. That's what challenge is: something that doesn't just automatically happen for you. It may take skills that you don't possess yet and may take talents that you don't think you have. And that's why it's a challenge. And we are going to embrace and support you in your choice.”
