We will travel to a selected country and remain in that location for approximately two weeks participating in a humanitarian relief project. We will identify areas where we can be of service, then live and work alongside the local community with the intention of making the greatest difference possible. Participants will be under the supervision of trained professionals Thad Turner and Bazzel Baz every step of the way.
Ultimately, it is our hope that the young man will be encouraged and challenged to push his inner limits and to learn the benefits and importance of working as a team while at the same time generating an awareness and concern for others. During these experiences the participant will be coached in the art of self-reflection initiating a life-long process of personal growth.
Phase 2 is an essential part of the Quest because it teaches participants the value of service work to others in need. It exposes them to an entirely different way of life which in turn widens the lens by which they view the world and themselves. The experience awakens their ability to transform internally as well as to effect change on a broad scale, even on communities over a thousand miles away from their own. By stretching their sense of community and responsibility, their sense of what’s truly important expands as well as their belief that anything is possible.
During this portion of the quest while the participant is away, parents and families sometimes find themselves wanting additional support and guidance. Natasha Silver Bell is available throughout the process for families who may need or want new tools and insights to better support the participant who returns transformed from their experiences on the quest.
Note that there is no typical day at the Quest. The schedule, activities and missions are tailored to the specific needs of each participant and are adjusted at the discretion of the team in order to best support each participant in their ultimate development.
A sample day on the Quest Phase Two could look like this:
- Morning Physical Training
- Journal Review/ Setting Daily Objectives
- Service Project
- Cultural Interaction
- Evening Physical Training
- Dinner, Exchange of Ideas, Lessons, and Thoughts
