Educating for Success is an ego-enhancing program designed to engage participants in identifying successes, strengths, and values. By understanding and affirming identities, participants are empowered to make self-fulfilling rather than self-defeating choices. Participants will work in collaborative teams to learn new communication and problem-solving skills and set achievable goals.
