We create experiences that inspire the next generation to discover their personal best, courageously engage with the world, celebrate the challenges that come with trying hard things and meet every opportunity with persistence, patience and a positive attitude. Headfirst is the country’s leading provider of transformational experiences for children, young people and adults. Founded in 1996 in Washington, D.C., we have flourished into a national brand that operates multiple programmatic divisions with 50 full-time employees and 600 seasonal team members.
We combine a diverse set of experiences with industry-leading curriculum grounded in social-emotional learning, to challenge and inspire aspiring artists, scientists, musicians, athletes and explorers. We are driven every day by one mission – to inspire the personal best in those who experience our programs, in our partners and in one another.
