Resilience, Diversity and Inclusion

No Barriers specializes in teaching resilience, hope and optimism with one of the most diverse and inclusive instructor teams ever assembled. Our areas of expertise include: harnessing adversity, cultivating resilience, facing fear, diversity and inclusion, innovation, leading with purpose, building strong communities and servant leadership. Through decades of leadership development work with veterans, people with disabilities, families, educators and corporate leaders, we have fine tuned a unique philosophy and approach to personal growth. We call it the No Barriers Life framework and it’s the recipe that gives people the confidence that What’s Within Them Is Stronger Than What’s In Their Way.

Exceptional Authentic Storytelling

Our programs focus on creating life-changing experiences for every single participant. We capture many of those moments and use them to tell powerful stories. We have an array of inspirational and educational storytelling opportunities topically aligned to our core mission and involving any of our target populations (e.g. veterans, youth, educators, caregivers). Our sponsors love the ability to co create compelling stories that meet our mutual objectives.

Engage Your Employees

We can guarantee your employees will fall in love with the No Barriers community because we’ve seen it happen time and time again. Many describe their No Barriers sponsorship experience as the best thing they’ve ever been involved with at their respective companies. Whether you want to share compelling stories with employees, get them involved as volunteers or empower them to co-create and execute on a partnership strategy, we will help you engage authentically and meaningfully with your team.

“It’s a community that pulls you in and ultimately empowers you to change your life for
the better. It opens a window into the experiences, thoughts and souls of people who will
profoundly inspire you. It speaks to your brain and your heart. It is a magical gift of fuel
and direction for life. Join this community at your peril – your life will likely not be same
when you are done.
–George Heinrichs, CEO of Ande, Founder of Intrado, Inc

  3. Give Youth Resilience & Hope: Help us bring our transformative in-school and at-home resiliency activities to thousands of teachers and tens of thousands of students.

  4. Build An Inclusive & Resilient Culture: Use our virtual and in-person learning experiences to grow your team’s commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Whether you want a commercial, a social media campaign, a podcast series or more, we help you reach your audience engagement goals.

“We have been a very proud sponsor of No Barriers since 2014 and we find it is one of the most important things we do every year. We are able to connect with veterans and people with disabilities and learn about how to be a more inclusive culture ourselves. It challenges us to be our very best and ensure we are delivering our best to our team members as well.”
