Our Award Winning Program
The Unbeatables Academy offers an interactive online and offline life skills training program for children, delivered by a squad of 5 super heroes: Fit Freddy, Friendly Felix, Caring Carol, Clever Cleo and Achiever Ai-Jay, with the mission of rescuing children from their enemies such as: obesity, bullying, sinking grades, boredom, lack of motivation, confusion, and social anxiety, among others. Their powers lie in having the ability to solve everyday problems and how to live a healthy and productive life.
The Unbeatables Academy is designed for after school programs, summer camps and any children’s extracurricular activity center that will have the opportunity to obtain a license and be trained to run our program at their own institution. Those institutions that will offer our Life Skills Training will be able to create a better community not only within their institutions but outside them as well, by raising up successful children that will be more productive members of our society. It is a proven program that has been created by experts in the fields of Psychology, Family Therapy, Life Coaching, Education, Nutrition and Wellness. It is currently endorsed and implemented by the City of Doral in their summer camps, and has been awarded as the Educational Program of the Year by the Minority Chamber of Commerce.

Taking Action, Moving Forward
After years of consultations as a psychologist and marriage and family therapist, TUA founder Gabriela Casanas realized that the physical, mental and social problems our children experience today were escalating. The lack of resources available to families and their children only aggravated the situation. Thus, The Unbeatables Academy was born.
The Unbeatables are a crew of 5 super heroes with the power to possess the tools, tips and tricks needed to be successful in all aspects of life and transmit those powers to any child who wants to be like them. The Unbeatables are used in every aspect of TUA.
The Unbeatables Academy is an on and off line program that teaches kids life skills in a fun and interactive way. Online, in the form of 5 virtual characters that talk to the kids about ways of how they can effectively handle different situations that daily lives present to them; and off line by the intervention of live facilitators which interrelate with the students during the whole presentation. Both parts of the program guarantee longer lasting learning by working with how a child's brain works.
The program also uses a well structured reward system that allows the kids to earn incentives according with their behaviors, which increases their motivation and participation.

Maria GonzalezEducational Program Consultant
"I am blessed with the opportunity in life with the calling of being an educator. It was not what I thought I was going to be doing in my life. When growing up I wanted to be a scientist in some quiet lab discovering the next cure. However education choose me after finishing my BS in Health Education, then going on into the field of psychology, particularly Systemic Family Therapy. For some their career path is very straight forward; for many it is an opportunity to explore several options, specially in today's world. The most important is waking up and feeling fulfill and ready for the days challenge"

My daughter has been going to the camp for a few years now and she loves it!!! She will be back again this year!!!"
“This program is truly one of a kind, not only involved in sports but also teaching kids life skills. As a counselor, I was able to see how much the kids grew in the matter of one summer. Everything done in this camp from daily activities to planned filed trips was done with the kids in mind, and I can honestly say working with them and other staff members led to an unforgettable summer. I highly suggest this camp to everyone!”
