Restoration and Recreation Skills:

Rest and play are critical to your overall well-being. At Momentum, through adventure activities, young adults gain confidence in trying new activities, learning new skills, and exploring ways to connect with others through outdoor activities such as: climbing, canoeing, fishing, hiking, and mountain biking.

In addition to play, rest is important. At Momentum, you’ll learn new ways or reconnect with hobbies or interests that may have been consumed by technology use. Daily restorative time to explore mediation, art, and other relaxation activities that help you get ready to engage with your responsibilities result in highly transferable skills!

Social and Emotional Learning Skills

Young adults at Momentum engage in a 12-week class on social and emotional learning (SEL). This class is a combination of academic skills such as writing, presenting, and classroom collaboration in tandem with the adventure and therapeutic programming.

Young adults receive the opportunity to practice skills of communication, understanding emotions, and the theories behind what make us who we are! SEL focuses on developing tools to increase self-awareness, self-control, and interpersonal skills that are all needed for school, work, and life success.
