Brief Program Description

So many students have been conditioned to dream big and follow their dreams. What happens when students do everything they can to attain a dream but it never becomes a reality? Or what happens when they reach the so called dream and it's not what they expected? This session is designed to inform educators to help at-risk students understand the difference between purpose and dreams, and to give educators a process called R4 to use with at-risk students struggling to become Life, College, and Career ready!
