We all carry seeds of greatness and potential. Yet in today’s world, many are left behind, caught in a tangle of fallout from a world out of balance. Social injustice, financial hardship and environmental damage can translate into immediate problems that present great hurdles for our young people. The lack of effective education, a deficiency of material resources, inequality, poverty, violence, family breakdown and neglect are among grave issues facing our youth.
Many boys, in particular, struggle in our society, over-represented by social, emotional and educational challenges.
Our desire for a better world rests in each of us making our unique contribution. Our mission is to support those who are ready to shift challenging life patterns into powerful new stories. Our work encourages people to establish strong learning communities and find opportunities to transform their current situations, discover their own solutions and create their own breakthroughs.
Our practical and pioneering programs help young men and families face the future with strength, wisdom and resilience. Our work is based on a whole-systems view, incorporating every aspect necessary to encourage positive change and realize true potential.
All Winder Foundation initiatives respond to the world’s urgent need for engaged learners and authentic leaders with the strength and skills to sustain us, our planet and future generations.
