What are customized afterschool programs? Prime examples are Be Your Dream, Journey, and Be The Dream which use hands-on approaches and experiential learning tools to inspire high school students to dream big.
Weekly sessions guide youth in envisioning their future, meaningful goal setting, identifying learning styles, leadership development, problem solving skills and career exploration to prepare students for post-secondary success.
Skill-based workshops offer youth the opportunity to develop skills needed to navigate the college entrance and job search process. For example, ACT preparation, scholarship detectives, financial aid, resume writing, interviewing skills, completing the FAFSA, college application completion and essay writing, etc.
