There needs to be a place for everyone. Somewhere where every child, every young adult feels welcome. Where they each feels that they have something of value to contribute. The Florida Odyssey of the Mind Association, an affiliate member of the Odyssey of the Mind Program, does just that.  

Odyssey of the Mind (OM™) teaches students how to develop and use their natural creativity to become problem-solvers. Imagine being faced with a problem that requires an original solution. It can be frightening. Now imagine not being afraid to solve that problem – that is what OM members learn. This skill and self-confidence will carry over to all areas of their lives. OM brings the classroom to life as students apply what they learn and combine it with their interests and passions to solve our unique open-ended problems. OM also emphasizes teamwork, budgeting, time management, public speaking, and so much more. This international program is designed to help students at all learning levels grow as individual learners, grow as team members, and to reach their full potential.

As a dedicated volunteer for many years, I am lucky. I have seen first hand how this program has changed lives, transformed family relationships and launched children and young adults to take challenges head on and solve them!

Never heard of Odyssey of the Mind program? Take a look back at the movie, Apollo 13.  Finding a way back for the astronauts when all went wrong, and the NASA Engineers made it right, that's Odyssey of the Mind.

It truly is a program that has something for everybody.  Help us, help the next generation soar!
