Why Inspire?

The power of authentic connection with individual students inspires transformation.
Boomerang youth begin to become agents of positive change in their own lives and in their communities when they have a sense of ownership and actively engage in learning experiences. Our experiential programming is designed to help young people learn self-regulation, understand their resiliency, develop social and emotional competencies, and strengthen their executive functioning.

Our Impact
  • 75% of students participating in community service projects improved connectedness to school and community.
  • 85% of students significantly improved understanding of future choices after attending “What’s Next?” workshops.
  • 95% of students set short-term goals for academic success and personal growth.
  • 300 students participate year-round in after school programs, team-building and other acts of civic engagement.
Together we can make a real difference in the lives of young people who need us most.
  • What’s Next? for middle and high school students: a highly interactive workshop series focused on skill-building for each age group: from post-graduation planning, job readiness, building financial capability, and entrepreneurship development, positive development of self, communication, conflict management, navigating social media, healthy relationships, etc., to learning to change a tire.
  • Support on Demand services for brief counseling
  • Training for volunteers and interns – we need inspiring and inspired people to support program delivery (public policy, advocacy, expanding circles of support in the community)
 “You go to Boomerang sad and broken, and come out wanting better for yourself.”
