Momentum Education was founded in 2003 by Robin Diane Lynn (Jun 28, 1951 - January 15, 2010), an internationally recognized inspirational trainer and life coach, who spent her career facilitating personal empowerment workshops all over the world, including the former Soviet Union, North America, Europe, and post-apartheid South Africa.
Robin's work in South Africa with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission garnered her recognition and acknowledgment from the Clinton Administration for designing and implementing a series of specialized workshops that supported survivors of the atrocities of apartheid. The workshops were designed to help participants heal, forgive, and fully participate in the creation of a new South African society.
The experience of helping people, who faced unspeakable violence and oppression, to envision and create better lives for themselves and a just society for those around them inspired Robin to found Momentum Education. Her mission was to transform humanity through acceptance, healing, leadership, contribution and empowerment.
In 2009, Robin created Momentum for Teens, a non-profit organization that teaches the principles of leadership to young people. Creating a space where teens could understand that they matter, achieve their goals, and be leaders in their own families and communities was also a passion of Robin’s and a goal she was able to reach before her passing in January 2010.
Her legacy continues to be the foundation of Momentum Education's events and programming. It is by her example that we find innovative and relevant ways to realize her vision.
