C4 provides off-site team building school assemblies in Minnesota, North Dakota and beyond. School retreats such as the 6th grade "Identity Challenge" instill character and confidence. While the 9th grade "Excellence Challenge" will improve teamwork in a way traditional programs cannot. A Character Challenge program is not simply bringing in a speaker for your school. Our programs connect students in hands-on activities, team focused events, and provide engaging and motivational stories. Contact us to learn more about how an interactive programs can improve your school's culture. Or you can read about some of our recent school assemblies. All of our programs come with this peace of mind: If you, your administration and your students are not entirely satisfied with the program, we will refund your money. No questions asked.

Within caring learning communities, there are important relationships forged by teachers, students, administration. Students have opportunities to develop autonomy and influence and a focus on a shared sense of purpose is key. In these settings, students and staff look FORWARD to walking through the school's doors.

Students who are more engaged and attached to school have better attendance, higher graduation rates as well as higher grades and standardized test scores." (Boomerang Project)
