Goal-Digging with the Student Streetworker Outreach Team
Eliesel Morales and Tarah Dorsey, ISPN's Student Streetworker Outreach Team work specifically in middle schools with at-risk youth. Recently, Eliesel and Tarah asked their kids to complete vision boards to help the students gain clarity on their goals.
Tarah and Eliesel gave each of the kids magazines and asked them to cut and paste any pictures that resonated with them. Specifically, things they would like to do, careers they would like to pursue, or things they would like to have.
Afterward Tarah and Eliesel asked the students to give a presentation and explain their vision to the group. "The Vision Board Project was a great experience and we hope to do another one with a different group of students! It's great to shed a positive light on the kids in our community," said Eliesel.
