“It really taught me that I lack nothing.” – Ritu, age 17
Why Your Gift Matters
Illuminating the Inward Bound retreat experience is like looking through a kaleidoscope: from one moment to the next exists a beautiful dance of being and becoming. When this flow of grounding and growing is sustained for a whole retreat, teens experience unparalleled nurturing and possibility. The results are often life-changing.
Since 2017, the generosity of Inward Bound supporters has provided 2,419 youth (79% of total participants) with $2.45 million in tuition assistance. Last year, our expert teachers and mentors were able to meet the mounting mental and emotional needs of hundreds of teens, all while welcoming a record number of first-time participants. We also celebrated the national launch of our custom programs and the graduation of 42 mindfulness teacher training professionals.
With our 2023 schedule adding new regional retreats and families experiencing increased financial hardships, the need for scholarship support will only increase. Please make a gift today to ensure that every teen is able to ground and grow in our programs this year.
