Our System

B.E.A.C.H. Life

(Business, Education, Arts, Community, Health)

The B.E.A.C.H. Life Track to Success and Purpose Community Operating System is an interdisciplinary strategy that uniquely incorporates a trauma-informed approach, designed to seamlessly harmonize personal development, career advancement, and community engagement, while fostering a supportive environment for holistic growth and collaboration.

Business

Business is a cornerstone of human progress, driving employment, wealth creation, and economic growth. Responsible business practices foster innovation and technological advancements, enhancing sectors like healthcare and transportation. However, ethical conduct is crucial to prevent harm to the environment and society, ensuring businesses contribute positively to global well-being

Education

Education is the foundation for personal and professional success, offering essential skills and knowledge. It promotes social mobility, reduces poverty, and contributes to economic growth. Critical thinking skills developed through education are vital for solving complex problems and addressing global challenges, empowering individuals to lead fulfilling lives and contribute to a better world.

Arts

The arts are integral to human life, providing avenues for emotional expression, connection, and appreciation of beauty. Beyond this, the arts preserve cultural heritage, foster diversity, and promote inclusion. Through mediums like painting, singing, and dance, the arts inspire understanding, unity, and positive change, making the world a more vibrant and interconnected place.

Community

Community is a cornerstone of human existence, offering a sense of belonging, social support, and shared resources. Communities foster social cohesion, collective action, and social capital development. Active community involvement contributes to sustainable development, addressing local and global challenges collaboratively, creating a sense of purpose and mutual care.

Health

Health is fundamental to human well-being, influencing individual happiness, economic development, and social stability. Prioritizing good health through healthy lifestyles, access to healthcare, and addressing health inequalities is crucial. Additionally, addressing global health challenges and climate change is essential for the sustained well-being of humanity on Earth.

Our Strategy

IKIGAI

Our strategy are designed to inspire and encourage students, families, and stakeholders of the communities we serve, to live a quality of life that will help them live a life of character, faith, endeavoring, respect for others, and refraining from violent behavior. We utilize our guiding principles and the D.I.K.I.W. (Data, Information, Knowledge, Intelligence, and Wisdom) Hierarchy model to help our students, families, and stakeholders to receive, process, and translate data in a way that is relatable and easy for them to internalize. We believe that all data can be useful, however, interpretation is the key to being able to use any piece of data to gather a useful understanding for evolving. This mindset for a community to operate from is the proper mindset to create and preserve community wealth that can be sustained for future generations.

This is the foundation of building communities from the inside out to be resilient and focused on the process of evolving in harmony with the digital and natural worlds in a peaceful and balanced way. This flagstone product of Evolve Community Foundation Inc. allows us to harmoniously integrate all our programs, products, and initiatives into the communities we serve in an honorable and dignified way. This is the foundation and philosophy of our B.E.A.C.H. Life Game, Our B.E.A.C.H. Life Clubs, Our Therapeutic Retreat and Wellness Tours, Our Peace Pond Project, Our Therapeutic Landscape Company, Our Partnerships, Our Digital Media Services, Coaching and Training Service, and our Business Incubation, and Workforce Development Programs.
