Empowering Indigenous Youth: ACCESS Futures Transforms Lives with Activ8's Youth Career Development Workshop
In the heart of Indigenous communities, ACCESS Futures, located in Vancouver, is making a difference in many ways, including its recent partnership with Activ8 Corporate Relations + Training. Together, we provide Indigenous Youth with essential career and life skills that pave the way for a brighter future.
Unleashing Potential Through Self-Discovery
The importance of self-assessment in the journey towards success is paramount. The workshop encourages Indigenous Youth to explore their strengths and interests, empowering them to make informed choices about their career paths. By fostering self-discovery, these young individuals gain a deeper understanding of their unique abilities and passions.
Building Confidence and A Positive Mindset
Activ8's transformative approach goes beyond traditional training. Indigenous Youth are guided through exercises that retrain their brains to think more optimistically, overcoming negative thoughts that may hinder their progress. Fun, confidence-building activities are woven into the curriculum, empowering participants to believe in their capabilities and face challenges head-on.
Crafting a Vision for the Future
By setting clear goals and visualizing success, participants develop a roadmap that aligns with their aspirations. This visionary approach empowers them to take charge of their destinies with purpose and determination.
Goal Setting with the SMART Method
Understanding the significance of goal setting, Activ8 introduces the SMART method to Indigenous Youth. Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound goals become the foundation for their success. This structured approach ensures that their efforts are focused and results-driven, setting them on a path toward tangible achievements.
Financial Empowerment: Budgeting, Saving, and Investing
One crucial aspect of Activ8's curriculum at ACCESS Futures is financial literacy. Indigenous Youth are taught essential money management skills, including budgeting, saving, and investing for the future. This knowledge empowers them to make informed financial decisions and build a stable foundation for economic independence.
Exploring Career Options and Mastering Job Application Skills
ACCESS Futures recognizes the importance of preparing Indigenous Youth for the professional world. Activ8 provides:
Comprehensive guidance on assessing career options
Mastering job application processes
Honing interview and sales skills
This holistic approach ensures that participants are well-equipped to navigate the competitive job market.
Entrepreneurship: Paving the Way for Self-Empowerment
With an eye toward self-empowerment, we introduced the Youth to the world of entrepreneurship. They gained insights into what it takes to start and run a business. This exposure opens doors to alternative career paths, inspiring a new generation of entrepreneurs within Indigenous communities.
In collaboration with Activ8, ACCESS Futures transforms lives and ignites a spark of ambition within Indigenous Youth. This dynamic partnership fosters a generation of empowered individuals ready to make their mark on the world by instilling essential career and life skills at an age where they can start earlier versus as adults to achieve their goals and dreams.
We are thrilled about our collaboration with ACCESS and look forward to inspiring more Indigenous Youth together!
