Empowering Confident Youth will benefit many students because adolescents and even adults do not know how to go about finding their passion. Nor do they know how to tackle the fears that hold them back from leading a full life. The earlier they get those lessons the earlier they can begin to be more fulfilled.
Other programs pride themselves on producing ‘good’ students; ECY is asking students to create their own goals, measures of success, and think for themselves. Not only do I believe this will create successful adults in the long run, it will help students uncover who they are and lead them to a goal that was not discussed when I attended middle and high school: authentic happiness.
I am a public-school teacher of 15 years and mother to a 23-year old “Zoomer.” Empowering Confident Youth offers a refreshing new perspective. Generation Z needs to be equipped with an understanding of themselves and able to translate that into productive action. This program helps them begin that journey sooner rather than later.
