Rising Momentum offers programs for sports teams and clubs, at-risk teens, company teams and events, college students, and our after-school program for Flagler County Teens. 

About Rising Momentum



Provide engaging, exciting, challenging and fun activities for young Leaders in our community. Develop maturity, responsibility and accountability through activities teens enjoy and want to come back for. Give the teens a voice, by allowing their recommendations and feedback to shape future programs. Design activities created by teens, for teens.



High school shouldn't feel like a drag, but an uplifting pull to success. Growth and development of young adults is best done in exciting, engaging and adventurous environments. Developing teenagers should have fun while they learn maturity, responsibility and accountability. The skills needed to succeed in school, at work and in life can be taught through hands-on, challenging activities that teens look forward to.

About Our Mentors

Sample Session Plan

Introduction: 5-10 minutes to introduce a theme or topic. (ex. facing adversity)

Challenge Activity: 15-30 minutes as a team, teens accomplish a goal together. We will use latest trends and technology to keep it interesting. We may create a video, play a modified sport, or build something. Teens are in charge! They decide how to tackle each challenge while mentors simply observe.

Discussion: 5-10 minutes for a mentor-led discussion focusing on teamwork, communication, problem-solving and leadership. Teens tend to enjoy the discussion as much as the activity itself!

More Activity/Discussions: Teens then repeat the activity with new rules, or an entirely new activity. Followed by more mentoring and coaching. Allowing teens to practice and improve their teamwork and leadership skills!

Closeout: 5-10 minutes to  summarize the session and discuss lessons learned.
