Our Mission

The 12.14 Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering well-being in children by instilling grit and resilience through a character development program coupled with high-level mastery experiences.

Every action we take aligns with our goal to turn our participants into problem-solvers and risk-takers; those who take responsibility for their own actions; those who act with commitment, perseverance and grit; and those that have found their passion by defining and understanding themselves and blazing their own path.

Our Vision

Imagine a world where people see themselves and others in terms of strengths rather than weaknesses; where we focus on commonalities rather than differences; where society values the achievement of overall well-being above all others.
