What we know

Mental, emotional, and physical health influence how we feel, think, and act in our daily lives. Teens are a product of their environment and family system; and many families naturally experience some level of dysfunction. Our teens also spend majority of their time in school, a place where they gain social and behavioral skills.

Due to their changing brains, bodies, and rapidly transitioning social environment, our teens are increasingly susceptible to: risk-taking, impulsivity, peer influence, lack of inspiration, attention-seeking, sensation-seeking, eating disorder, substance abuse, depression, anxiety, and violence.

Also, it is almost impossible for the younger generation to feel connected, purposeful, empowered, understood, accepted, protected, loved, and confident due to various circumstances described below:

  1. Limiting options and rights given to our educators in our school systems.
  2. Underpaid educators with over-populated classrooms.
  3. Unproductive and unhealthy use of modern technology.
  4. Modern social media disconnecting our most vital and natural need for survival: human connection and interaction.
  5. Media messages effectively enforcing and encouraging:
    1. addiction for short-lived pleasures and fame,
    2. acceptance and love gained through materialistic possessions.
  1. Pharmaceutical companies overmedicating, interrupting, mutating, and numbing the natural process of growth of our youth.


According to CDC and suicide.orgteens and adolescent suicides and school shootings have continued to rise dramatically in recent years.

  • Every 100 minutes a teen takes her/his own life.
  • Suicide is the third-leading cause of death for young people ages 11 to 24.
  • About 20 % of all teens experience depression before they reach adulthood.

Only 30% of depressed teens are being treated for it and ask for help.

What we have done about it

At Beyond Development, we acknowledge that every teen is influenced by her/his environment. We also understand that in order to make any type of positive change possible in their current state, they must make new choices and accept change. Different choices require them to move out of their comfort zone and towards the future. And most often, majority of teens lack the skills and the tools to move forward in the proper direction. 

At Beyond Development, it is in our highest commitment and passion to provide teens with the skills, tools, and direction that allows space for growth, awareness, clarity, purpose, passion, achievement, success, and ultimate happiness. We believe in building communities of compassionate influencers and leaders, and not laborers.

We believe that it is also our duty as the older generation to meet their needs by providing our younger generation the skills and tools necessary to overcome challenges as they enter adulthood in our rapidly changing society.

With such skills and tools gained through Beyond Development, our teens will have the ability to properly:

  1. Cope and overcome their emotional as well as mental challenges independently.
  2. Evaluate social media and mass media messages sent to them.
  3. Use modern technology and social media to their benefit.
  4. Work together as a united team in their schools and communities.
  5. Establish healthy relationships with themselves and others.
  6. Connect with their inner self and achieve their highest potential.
  7. Gain purpose, positive attitude, self-worth, and self-confidence.
  8. Build their communities.
  9. Accept change and make a difference for others.

How it works

Beyond DevelopmentTM is constructed as a self-guided transformative program to use at home, in school, and at any location worldwide 24hours per day. Teens will have access to this program via our app on designated iPads in schools, through our online program (BeyondDevelopment.org), and physical workbooks. We are also able to easily integrate our program with most other existing systems that schools already use to facilitate similar programs such as ours.

Also, Beyond DevelopmentTM is a self-guided program designed to be simple and easily applicable. Our educators can implement these tools in their classrooms during academic hours, in their after-school programs, and assign desired sessions as homework.

Guardians and helping professionals can also provide and implement our program to their teens with productive results, as it is a self-guided program. This way, your teens have access to our program if their school is not offering Beyond Development.
