Our stress-filled culture offers little time or space for young people to explore who they are and how they can create positive change in the world.
Lagom Landing gives 18-23 year olds time to step away from the pressure and fast pace, and into the peace of a rural landscape and friends who "have their backs." Students learn from the daily practices of labor and living in community. Working with their hands in the skilled building trades, gardening, cooking and preserving food, as well as creating an internship of their choice, students gain confidence, leadership, and self-knowledge.
Along with the hands-on aspects of the program, students critically reflect on our world through reading, individual reflection, and leading group reflections. They learn to be independent by shopping for their own food, doing laundry, managing their money, caring for animals, and cooking and cleaning their apartments. Life-long inter-generational friendships are created, and support networks boost students into their next phase of life with added confidence, resilience, empathy, and compassion.
We keep our tuition to just $900/month for all inclusive participation (room, board, field trips, and all instruction included), but inability to pay this blocks no student due to a generous scholarship fund started by a donor in our first year. We are especially committed to serving these students who would not otherwise have such an opportunity.
Your donation today will be doubled by a generous donor. $100 becomes $200--automatically!--and $450 would be doubled to fund an entire month at Lagom Landing!
By giving to Lagom Landing today, you will not only ROC the Day, you will ROC the rest of these students' LIVES!

We are committed to working with vulnerable students who otherwise could not afford this opportunity. Every dollar you contribute on ROC the Day will be DOUBLED by a group of donors, and allow us to keep welcoming students from all economic backgrounds.
