ThinkBuildLive Success is a life skills and self-empowerment program whose goal is to ensure students' success both in school and in the workplace. Regardless background, life circumstances, or level of education, the tools they will develop in this program will empower them to make changes that will dramatically improve the quality of their lives. Students will learn to recognize those choices and behaviors that are, and are not, working for them, as well as techniques for self-motivating, identifying and achieving their goals, communicating with integrity, starting down a well-matched career path, and staying on track with a sustainable plan of action. The program utilizes targeted exercises, group activities, class discussion, inspirational films, motivational games, and other creative means to make every lesson engaging and relevant to real life.
