Through our generous funders at STEM Next, we’ve connected with the Possible Futures curriculum from Jobs for the Future, which provides career exploration for learners in 6th–10th grade, so that every young person will gain the foundational knowledge, skills, and experiences they need to make critical decisions about their future with confidence.

In particular, we’re piloting a subset of the curriculum, Growing Myself, curated by our friends at Oregon ASK.  This 12-lesson set focuses on celebrating failure, luck vs. opportunity, self-talk/mindsets, identity, cooperative vs. competitive, culture/membership in groups, their sparks (special skills), and where I am/where I am going.
