Who created the Power of PATH Curriculum?
Tasha Schuh - survivor, fighter, and renowned youth speaker. After a tragic theater accident at the age of 16 left her paralyzed from the chest down, Tasha has dedicated her life to helping youth navigate struggles and build resilience. Alongside Tasha and her husband Doug, her team of experts created this unique curriculum. To learn more about Tasha and to meet the contributors, click here.
Understanding the Why Behind Our Curriculum
In 2014, Tasha and Doug received the tragic news that a close friend had lost her son to suicide. Logan was only 14 years old. This came as a total shock and a wake-up call simultaneously. After Logan's death, Tasha and Doug took it upon themselves to start something that would generate awareness, compassion, and acceptance for youth. The PITCrew Movement was born and has evolved into our unique Power of PATH Curriculum. This is a pledge to Logan and all of those who feel lost and unheard: The Power of PATH provides a voice to reach out, ask for help, and know that there is hope.
Be proactive. Don't wait. Equip your students now with the tools to face life's challenges.

What Mental Health Professionals have to say
"I am really impressed with the Power of PATH Curriculum. It hits on every note. The concepts are clearly laid out and support each of the four categories of PATH. I was equally impressed with the bonus material, which further deepened the concepts. The importance of understanding our purpose, emotions, moods, perception, attitude, etc. is such an important piece for young people. The piece exploring our support system is vital in developing our own PITCrew. The exercises were excellent in knowing the criteria to seek out these people and how to be a support to others as well. All of these concepts together help to build a resilient person.
PATH is a template for life."
