Future Directions Workshop
Future Directions is designed to help students gain a positive vision for their own futures. It does not seek to pigeon-hole or limit the options of any student. Rather, Future Directions helps students open options and ideas for themselves – realistic options that come from their own abilities, values, interests, and natural talents. Future Directions helps students start to make sense out of the question, "What am I going to do with my life?”
Students can understand what they would be good at doing, and what would be meaningful, enjoyable, and interesting. They can begin to envision a future that they want to live in — a future vision that can help guide the many career decisions they are about to start making.

to stay in college, do better, and enjoy the whole college experience.
It can’t just be any vision, however, it has to be one that is
clearly and positively linked to who the student is. Research has demonstrated
repeatedly that nothing predicts either success or satisfaction better
than having a Personal Vision that is positively grounded

Battery is more valuable
to a student than taking another SAT prep course."
