Walking in Purpose
Do you know what your purpose is in the out-of-school time space? Would you like to be more comfortable trying new things and finding your vision for life? The Walking in Purpose training facilitates OST staff through activities, discussion and exercises that help them define purpose as it relates to their life and the out-of-school time program space.
Participants will discuss the importance of understanding where they come from in terms of culture and values. Participants will discover where they are going in terms of direction and vision through guided exercises that examine destiny and attitude. By the end of the training, participants will use this newfound knowledge to make a plan to help youth discover and follow their purpose.
