Teen Journey – A Journey like no other!
Teen Journey is a Vancouver-based non profit organization created to empower youth with a vision of interconnectedness, as members of a global village that live from the heart with passion and purpose. Founded on the established research and time-tested practices blending indigenous wisdom with the human potential movement, Teen Journey is a transformational program for youth in search of inner guidance. Led by local and international leaders in the fields or arts, science, and personal development, Teen Journey participants learn the value of self-inquiry as a means to change themselves and the world around them.
Founder of Teen Journey:
TJ Board of Directors:
The vision of Teen Journey came to Ela Rezmer in a remarkable and unexpected call from her heart to create a community where teens could fully explore and discover themselves, their talents and their values.
She began gathering people who are passionately committed to themselves and their inner journey; people who also have the desire to share their gifts and wisdom with teens. These mentors help and guide young people through their own personal journey of self-discovery. Without hesitation these leaders came to Teen Journey giving their time, their stories and their inspiration.
Answering the call is a group of volunteers and mentors committed to bridging tribal wisdom with modern culture. Many people have contributed their time and energy to Teen Journey, including people like Malidoma Somé, Dr Vernon Woolfe, Juan Ruiz Naupari of INKARRI & PNEUMA – people who are passionate and renowned professionals in their respective fileds. As an organization, we already exist in a global village, and are re-connecting with the roots and traditions of the cultures around us to connect the wisdom of sages and scientists. Each of the passionate and committed volunteers and leaders of Teen Journey brings a lifetime of self-exploration and mentorship to our community and its events.
The people of Teen Journey have united around a purpose. Every mentor, leader and volunteer has come together around a common cause: to be in service to youth. The underlying purpose and vision of Teen Journey constantly attracts new and remarkable people… and we would like you to be one of them.
- To provide both practical and personal mentorship to the youth involved in Teen Journey
- To grow relationships that can bridge the generation gap- between youth, parents and grand-parents
- To rebuild a relationship of trust between youth and adults, and create a safe space where young people can create their own history
- To connect the youth of Teen Journey to an international community and give them an opportunity to experience new cultures and perspectives.
Come and join our journey.
