This group will explore skills for career pathways and responsible personal relationships through fun and interactive experiences. Over the course of two semesters, we will develop skills to relate to self and others, create personal and financial goals, and think critically to connect our personal skills, values, and interests with the community.
In the first semester, we will target skill sets to
- Be true to yourself and build good relationships with other people
- Communicate well in difficult situations
- Recognize the skills that you already have and learn new ones
- Understand why conflict happens and how to construct a resolution
In the second semester we will learn to:
- Connect present choices and your future education, personal finances, and career paths
- Create short- and long-term goals
- Identify character traits that can help you overcome obstacles and achieve career goals
- Think critically to connect personal and financial choices with subsequent outcomes
- Cultivate an entrepreneurial mindset
These workshops blend coursework from AVP and JA to offer a multi-faceted approach to self-development.
