Explore Your Future
Attend an interactive and exciting Explore Your Future workshop series hosted by a Coming of Age partner
Explore Your Future is a series of four facilitated workshops that help individuals 50 and forward envision the next phase of life including volunteer projects, lifelong learning and encore careers.
Session topics include "What Has Influenced Me?", "Who Am I Now?", and "How Can I Realize My Dreams?". All sessions include discussions, reflection time, and exercises to guide participants towards a greater understanding of the events, people, themes, and patterns that have shaped their lives and brought them the greatest fulfillment.
Through self-discovery and assessment, participants identify where they are in their lives, their talents, values, passions, strengths, and aspirations. This self-awareness will propel participants towards practical, creative methods of aligning their values, passions, and gifts towards purpose and potential. Participants walk away with an individually developed action plan based on specific, measurable, attainable, and timely goals; real and perceived challenges; and resources to help them reach their goals.
