By administering a survey and questionnaire before and after a student completes the Scholar Trek program, we can determine how much the student has learned about education, career, money, entrepreneurship and lifestyle. Observations made during the Interview uncover changes in a student’s beliefs, attitude, and motivation.
  • A series of in-depth, interactive life skill and motivational programs for young people and adults.  The program will guide participants, step-by-step, to craft a detailed vision of their independent adult life, discover their unique purpose in that life, and build real-world readiness skills.  They will develop a sense of direction and meaning as they learn the proportions and realities of the adult world.  Their plan is uniquely theirs, they created it, and they are more committed to taking the responsibility to making it come true.
