To help humanity thrive by empowering our young people
ROAR Inc teaches young people to enjoy physical exercise and to develop a mindset so powerful that they know they can overcome any obstacle. The ROAR Program can be simplified into three components: teaching the athlete mindset, physical challenges, and acts of service or kindness.
Mindset training is usually reserved for elite athletes to help them achieve their best performances, to deal with adversity, and to thrive both on and off the track. These psychological tools are beneficial in enhancing any peak performance in a young person's life, such as public-speaking, taking an exam, or nailing a job interview. The mindset principles are:
Attitude (Optimism and Positivity)
- Dealing Effectively with Emotions (Resilience)
Focus and Concentration
Sportsmanship (Humility and Integrity)
- Goal Setting
Participants earn wrist bands upon completion of goals, which act as a tangible reminder of their effort and success, and milestone rewards can also be earned. The physical goals have been chosen carefully as they can be achieved by most young people in an 8-week period and do not require any special athletic talent, but do require commitment and focus. The athletes are given diaries to track their progress towards their goals, and they are only permitted to record one act of kindness per day, encouraging daily habits of journal-writing and self-reflection.
Correlations between exercise and improved mental health have been researched and proven, as have the links between high self-esteem, a sense of community, and mental wellbeing. This unique program targets all of these areas and underpins its outstanding success.
