The anchor

The Anchor is our secure, private, and  free online community that provides support, connection, and mentorship  year-round to the patients, siblings, parents/caregivers, and Navy SEAL mentors who take part in our Climb for Courage events.

What is The Anchor?

The Anchor is our exclusive and private online community, just for  One Summit community members! Our free-to-use platform is a great  resource for support that is offered to all Climb for Courage (CFC)  participants. The platform is a safe and easy way for our patient and  sibling warriors to stay connected to their Navy SEAL mentors after they  take part in a CFC experience. It also provides a space for parents and  caregivers to find support amongst each other and a place for our  mentors to share mentorship best practices and tips. It will also  provide secure programming focused on mentoring, health and wellness,  mindfulness, education, and engaging entertainment. The Anchor fosters  meaningful, year-round connections and facilitates a nurturing  environment for the OS community, regardless of geographical location.

Why did we create The Anchor?

As our world continues to value virtual options, we wanted to extend  our programs to include a year-round web-based connection platform. The  Anchor allows for a safe and nurturing environment for our Little  Warriors to connect with their peers, for parents and caregivers to  support one another, and for our Navy SEAL mentors to share ideas and  tips on mentoring with each other. With this new platform, we are able  to engage kids and mentors more creatively, better reinforce  mentor-mentee relationships, and create a lasting community that builds  on and thrives between Climbs for Courage.

Is The Anchor safe?

The Anchor is a secure platform hosted by Mighty Networks. We have made The Anchor a private network, meaning that it is not accessible  by anyone in the public. Only individuals with an invitation or  approval from a One Summit staff member can join, making this an  exclusive network just for our OS community.

Who administers The Anchor?

The Anchor is closely monitored and overseen by One Summit staff  members. Our community guidelines require that everyone participating in  The Anchor exhibits kindness to create a safe online environment for  all members.

How do I become part of The Anchor?

The Anchor access is exclusively offered to participants of our Climb  for Courage programs. Going forward, all new Climb for Courage  participants will receive an invitation to join The Anchor after the  event. In early 2023, Climb for Courage participants from years past  will also be invited to join the platform. Our platform is available  through a web browser on your computer and through the Mighty Networks  app, available in both the Apple Store and the Google Play Store.
