“Our destiny may only change if we allow ourselves to imagine a destiny different from that which we were given”

Martin Weber

What are the challenges facing OSY in your program?

Challenges Faced by OSY

Limited time for study

Medical or dental issues

Instructional time

100 hours of instruction needed to move up one grade level in reading


Participants will be able to work with OSY to develop potential educational and/or life pathways for the youth, integrating networking, advocacy, and appropriate educational materials into an action plan.


Develop communication skills to cooperatively discuss dreams and develop plans with the youth.

Investigate ways that a student’s learning goals can inform an ESL class (or life skills and other classes).

Analyze case studies to develop comprehensive/individualized plan to best serve the youth and evaluate issues that student might face in completing his/her plan.

Supports for Persistence:

The student needs to establish a goal or projected pathway;

The student needs to have a sense of self-efficacy;

Students need to develop an understanding of the positive and negative forces that help or hinder their progress and ways to manage those forces;

Students need to see progress towards their objectives.

Discovering Our Dreams


Many OSY students have never had the opportunity to sit down and discuss their dreams and aspirations beyond the immediate.  This activity models a discussion we could have with our students about life planning.

Discovering Our Dreams


Trainers will discuss the relationship between planning and a sense of self-efficacy.

Participants will practice articulating aspirations with each other in a role play setting.
