Mission: The mission of Resiliency Foundation embodies a paradigm shift that expands the sphere of accountability for the education of youth from school systems to the community as a whole. Resiliency Foundation’s work challenges all parties to set aside individual interests in order to collectively address the complex issues that impact our youth today. The Resiliency Foundation facilitates the dialogue between school personnel and community stakeholders to develop and implement sustainable alternative educational pathways for youth not achieving success in the context of the traditional school model.
