As we all know, setting and achieving goals is a critical skill that assist students and youth to become more focused, motivated, and successful in all areas of their lives, even during college years.   It helps them develop a growth mindset and encourages them to take ownership of their learning and personal development however, many students struggle with goal setting either because they do not know how to set meaningful goals or because they lack the tools and support to achieve them.  As a result of having no well defined goals, many students are faced with:

  1. Lower Academic Achievement       

  2. Reduced Motivation 

  3. Increased Anxiety and Stress           

  4. Low  Self-Esteem

  5. Limited Career Opportunities

  6. (And possibly for some) Higher Risk of Substance Abuse

(In Honor of Latia)

(As seen on 6 ABC)

THE DATA IS IN... as per the Gun Violence Archive, over 6,000 youth/students fell victim to gun violence in the United States in the previous year.

 

Shockingly, guns have now become the leading cause of death among young people in the U.S. This alarming statistic hits close to home for Wanda, spurred by the loss of her niece, Latia Jones, a 20-year-old aspiring Forensic Psychologist at Temple University, who was fatally shot while spending time with a friend on their porch.

In response to these distressing realities, Wanda crafted this Goal Setting Action Guide, not to focus on gun violence but to aim, inspire and educate youths and students to focus on setting and achieving meaningful goals, academically and personally while fostering purpose and growth. It serves as a deterrent from negative influences and risky behaviors prevalent among today's youth.

Within this comprehensive Action Guide, your youth/students will explore practical and proven goal-setting principles and strategies essential for pursuing their aspirations.

Covering topics like the significance of having goals, how to set and write them properly, creating S.M.A.R.T goals, action item worksheets, self-discipline techniques, mini quizzes, and inspirational quotes, this guide is a valuable resource.

By implementing these meticulously crafted goal-setting principles, this Action Guide and the College Edition becomes a catalyst for motivation, and transformative changes that last a lifetime.
