Team Fort Collins has partnered with Over the Edge USA to host a very unique fundraising event for the Fort Collins area. Over the Edge participants, or Edgers, will raise money through peer to peer sponsorships to rappel off of the Oak Street Business Tower located at 315 W. Oak Street in Fort Collins. The event encourages Edgers to “go over the edge” to prevent youth substance abuse.

Define Yourself

THE DEFINE YOURSELF PROJECT is a program specifically designed to help young adults take control of their Printown lives. We’re here to help individuals like you define, find, create and move forward with their own lives on their own terms.

When obstacles present themselves in your life, and you’re forced to face decisions that may not in keeping with who you truly are, THE DEFINE YOURSELF PROJECT can help empower you to find alternate paths to handle these types of situations.

The Define Yourself Project is not a program to help you make life easier – it’s about helping you get YOU right.

We’re here to help evaluate, coach and empower you with some of the challenges you may be facing as a young adult. But more importantly, we’re here to help show you how to stay bold, stay brave, and most importantly, stay you.

BE BOLD.

There will be times in your life when you won’t know up from down, right from wrong or friend from foe.

BE BRAVE.

These times, may or may not, turn your world upside down. Strangely enough, these are also the times that will truly help define who you really are.

BE YOU.

It may not always seem like it, but difficulties and challenges are the very things that help us to grow into the people that we really want to become.
