Our approach is built on the program: Do What Matters Most
We are not a band-aid approach; we fill gaps by building habits that lead to success for a lifetime.
Yellow Parachute began in 1999 with Cara Thorpe’s vision of helping students build hope and belief.
And though this vision has evolved over time into helping students develop unique strengths and passions to serve others, the foundation of building hope has remained.
With this in mind, Cara recognized the Do What Matters Most training, created by Steve and Rob Shallenberger, as a set of simple, powerful habits to help students build hope and belief in themselves, transforming a student’s motivation, study skills, and time management.
