Welcome to the Bounce Back Generation!
Our mission is to help individuals, families, organizations and systems bounce back from the negative effects of toxic stress and trauma by building and sharing our practical tools for resilience.

The stress of living in the modern world affects us all.
This generation can bounce back.
We know that emotional trauma, adversity in childhood, and ongoing stress are impacting children and the adults they will become. Whether you're caring for a child or healing from your own childhood trauma, you are part of the Bounce Back Generation.
Our organization teaches adults and children how to understand and manage the connections between brain, body, and emotions. We show you how to transform your homes, schools, and workplaces so that your people, places, and practices can create opportunities to recover and grow stronger. Life is stressful, but we are the Bounce Back Generation!

Here's what our participants are saying about us...
"Thank you for showing me how to love myself when I was doubting myself. Now I know how my childhood trauma hurt me and how to make sure that doesn't happen to my kids."
Public Housing Parent
"Families experiencing housing insecurity were bought together for the first time in OUSD and received much-needed support. Participants built supportive relationships resulting in better management of life stressors."
Oakland Unified School District
"I definitely recommend Opportu/Bounce Back Generation for creation and delivery of training, especially if your goal is not just to get your employees to “buy into” an idea, but to engage them so they feel a sense of ownership for the outcome.
Employees who participated in the pilot said it was the best training they’d ever received."
