Doing Better In Toledo!

Torch Toledo

Torch Toledo Torch Toledo is a group of dedicated volunteers who work to bring The Torch Foundation's training workshops to Northwest OHIO.  The Torch Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) organization whose vision is a world of responsible, honest and aware teens who dream big and are empowered to change their families, schools and communities, in becoming our future leaders.

Torch Training is a two-day workshop with 1 month follow-up coaching designed to create leadership and empowerment in students aged 13-17.  The students of Torch Training will begin to create a foundation of powerful tools that will give them the freedom and confidence to pursue and achieve their dreams.  Some of the topics of Torch Training are:

  • Relationships
  • Consequences
  • Integrity
  • Forgiveness
  • Self-control
  • Self-respect
  • Responsibility
  • Effective communication

Because Torch Training is dedicated all teens, the two-day workshop is completely free to all who attend, including meals and snacks.  The staff and coaches are volunteers, many of  whom have completed a rigorous training series on emotional intelligence and leadership.  All of the coaches are required to have background checks completed before the training.
