April 27, 2016 | This week’s workshop encouraged students to take ownership of their future. They were provided with tools on how to be intentional toward their educational pathway.
During the workshop, students took time to outline their goals using the “Ladder of Success” model (see photos above). Students placed their ultimate goal(s) on top, their college goals in the middle, and their high school goals at the bottom. Within each level, they included the resources they would need to help them along the way. We encouraged the students to be mindful about what will supplement their educational experience. The Ladder of Success is meant to be a creative piece that the students can hang up in their home and be proud of what they created. The hope is that they will be reminded of their goals everyday and continue to strive toward their dreams.
