Welcome to this FREE resource Go On a Treasure Hunt: Discover Your Strengths.

Ask the student 14 or over to name one or more of h-her strengths? If h-she struggles or is curious to find more strengths, this is pretest can help. During the Coronavirus Crises and time at home, youth can benefit on focused time on positive and hopeful aspects about themselves. With all the anxiety and fear they hear in the media about the the outcomes of COVID-19, this product can help them shift their thinking to a constructive self-evaluation of what they may be able to see in themselves that is valuable and applicable. Furthermore, youth may be reminded of their capabilities and empower themselves use their strengths during this crisis and equally important, prepare for their future.

Secondly, as part of the beginning a career readiness program, this activity is useful as a pretest. The guided questions help students see their abilities and personal interests from from 3 strength categories. The self-assessment will engage the student to name their strengths and consider ways they can use their strengths on a day to day basis. The activity is based on these objectives:

1) The student will name one or more of their strengths. Examples are provided in this tool to help guide the student.

2) The student will name an environment, activity, or persons to use or develop one or more of their strengths.

3) The student will use the easy guide included in the pdf. to score their answers and to determine their self-awareness about their strengths.

I hope to encourage youth to not be afraid to recognize ways they have challenges in these strength areas. None of us are perfect. We all struggle at times in relating to others or helping ourselves. There are no failures, only levels of self-awareness about strengths. Identifying strengths or challenges are preparation of good things to come.
