LIVE ONLINE Project Wayfinder – Ages 15-18; 8/10

Project Wayfinder lets young people know the purpose of an everyday skill that can be incorporated into all aspects of life, including work, school, social relationships and leisure activities. Developing purpose begins with three types of belonging: feeling connected to yourself, the people around you, and the larger world you’re part of. From this foundational place of belonging, young people can begin to uncover what’s meaningful to them and what they care about. Equipped with these essential pieces of self-knowledge, they can learn to act with purpose, and build a life that aligns with their values and makes a positive impact on the world around them.

When teens develop a purposeful mindset, research shows that purpose:
● facilitates identity formation
● increases positive attitudes towards diversity
● attenuates antisocial behavior and bullying
● decreases engagement in risky behaviors
● increases academic engagement
● leads to increases in grade point averages
