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 weeks!


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.


FORTitude Teen Meet-Ups 

We are now organizing Teen online meet-ups to encourage connection, friendship, fun and sharing for all teens coping with continued isolation and social distancing. Moderated by our certified Sources of Strength staff, you can enjoy ice breaker games, great discussions and a weekly challenge to help keep everyone motivated. Registration required to access.
