We also realize that, although they are full of potential, many teens have difficulty planning for the future and might not be successful at filling out the workbook on their own.
Knowing that adolescent brains are not yet fully equipped for this kind of executive function activity, we’ve created a mentoring program introducing them to project- and time-management skills while also making concrete plans for a unique college path.
Our one-on-one program provides individualized guidance through all the exercises in the Teen Power Foundations Workbook. It includes individual 1-hour meetings on:
- Learning Key Traits Important to Top Colleges and Identifying your Story
- Writing Your First Hero’s Journey
- Branching Out, Exploring Interests, and Defining Activities
- College Planning Timeline
- Summary and Wrap-Up
- Complimentary Meeting with Student and Parents
Believing in teens means giving them the space and time to puzzle through the transition from young adolescent to pre-professional young adult. As psychologist Nicholas Allen notes, “when it comes to decisions that allow them time for reflection, the evidence suggests an adolescent’s skills can be on-par with a fully-grown adult.” Our Foundations service will get your adolescent started on developing healthy habits, making good decisions, and leveraging their interests and skills for future success.
The team at Blue Stars would love to help equip your teen!
