Due to our current COVID-19 environment, we've adapted like everyone else by changing the FORT community from meeting in person to going virtual for the coming months!


FORTitude is our online program, delivered via our social channels and video conferencing, with a commitment towards positive, resilience-based content and workshops to keep you connected and help your mental health stay strong as we navigate these times together.  

Our FORT workshop leaders, Sources of Strength trainers, friends and community partners are coming together to collaborate and support all of YOU as we emphasize that we are STRONGER TOGETHER. You'll find us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram @RyanBartelFoundation with inspiring content and stories while also offering virtual workshops over the coming weeks and months.
