Goal

To teach skills necessary for success throughout their primary and secondary school years to the male students in our school. 

 

What will be done with my students

I will meet with the boys weekly for sessions in communication, critical thinking, and collaboration, simultaneously combined with creativity, curiosity, and climbing. The boys will learn what it means to be part of a global society by connecting to outside resources in the world around them. Sessions will focus on leadership and teamwork. I will actively engage the boys in various activities that will foster cooperation rather than competition. I would like to provide them with physical activities that build their confidence while learning new life skills. The boys will solve problems together and learn how to function as a team, building relationships as well as confidence. 

 

Benefits to my students

Growth in personal development in the areas of communication, confidence, critical thinking, relationship building, and teamwork. Learning what it takes to find success through working and thinking together with others in a cooperative, empathetic environment outside their immediate surroundings.
 

 

Budget Narrative

The Pads will be used for a global research project that each "team" of boys will carry out. The books provide the curriculum, and the journal is a tool used for research development and communication.
