Empower Your Child During April Vacation at a Youth Empowerment Summit — kids (and parents, too!) will create your personal “GAME PLAN” for a successful future at a YES! Youth Empowerment Summit . . .
Students, imagine playing a game that shows you how to realize your dreams in life!
Parents, imagine, during a game-style of play your children, kindergarten to college age, creating a personal “Game Plan” for their successful future.
Kid’s imagine playing a game that helps you figure out who you are, what you want to do, and then helps you create a personal “Game Plan” how to get there! A Realizing Dreams: YES! Youth Empowerment Summit guides you step-by-step how to achieve your goals and realize your dreams in life! It’s all about helping you create your personal “Game Plan” for a successful future.
Parents, the purpose of the Realizing Dreams YES!… Youth Empowerment Summit is to help your child clearly see their path to a successful future and hone their focus and/or find their direction in life. The goal is to help your child unlock their potential, increase confidence, focus and motivation by discovering their inner drive that makes them thrive.
Workshop Format: The research-based activities start out in a game-style of play. Then within 90 minutes the student-centered enrichment provides results-based outcomes that empower the State of Connecticut’s Student Success Plans. Parents, grandparents, mentors, and caring adults are encouraged to join in the purposeful play where they will gain insight that helps unlock young people’s potential. Participants will learn the #1 question to ask to further empower their children’s successful future. Students will receive a keepsake action journal called 7 Steps for Empowering Youth: Self-Awareness Developing Grit and a Growth Mindset by Jim Cantoni. The research-based activities provide students with results-based outcomes that powerfully help young people express their thoughts and feelings about their interests, hopes, goals and dreams for their future. Students will learn strategies that take the stress out of testing and put the joy into learning, identify top strengths and develop leadership skills to help them overcome obstacles in school, work, health, life, and play. Like a GPS, 7 Steps for Empowering Youth guides students step-by-step how to create a personal “Game Plan” for a successful future. The workshop is all about Realizing Dreams…It’s Positively Empowering™.
