WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION: Learn how to create a vision board and how to use it to empower older youth! This hands on, interactive session will offer strategies to teach teens about personal, educational and career goal setting through the use of a vision board. Workshop participants will learn how to coach high school youth to develop their own vision boards, defining what they want to be, what they want to have and what they want to do as part of the vision board creation process. Learn how you can help young adults overcome fear, perceived obstacles, and lack of motivation and gain self esteem and drive using a vision board to turn ideas into actions! Participants will create their own personal vision board to represent their own goals, visions and dreams… and to help think about the places you’ll go, too!
