High School Students have a lot going on in their lives – more than most people think! It’s a time of great change in their lives. This personal development week for tweens and younger teens puts ideas squarely in their laps that can help provide direction and foundation for the road ahead. Students work with their instructor to explore and enhance skills like: goal setting, dream building, self-motivation, time management, creating high self-esteem, and developing a sense of purpose.
Day 1: Today we talk about how the small things in life really can make a big impact. Also, we take on the importance of attitude, and how it impacts everything we take on. Exercises and activities will confirm these ideas.
Day 2: Time and how we use it will be our first topic. After that, we move to exploring the idea that big projects work best when broken down into smaller steps.
Day 3: Today, we will talk about how to break the big things down into small, manageable pieces. Each time we engage in something new, different or unique, we learn – and from learning there can be no failure.
Day 4: What we spend our time on becomes who we are; habits can be managed to help us be the person we want to become. How to manage your habits to benefit you and the person you want to become.
Day 5: Use everything you know to make your future your own. Today, we put together some of the important ideas we’ve learned to create personal goals for the future. Students will leave with a set of goals for themselves and a clear idea of the personal atttributes they will need to achieve them.
Special Instructions: None. Students will be given notebooks for their use during the week. Laptops are not required.
This is a summer program for Middle School Students.
