Affective Skills Program Targeting Nationwide At-Risk Youth
Fearless is a program empowering at-risk students to excel academically and socially by teaching behavior modification, resiliency, character development, accountability, virtues, academic awareness, and the discipline to become a stronger self-driven student; driving every child to own their responsibility, and inspire their possibility. Conditioned Minds Fearless Affective Skills Program identifies and targets students in grades nine through twelve to help re-enforce focus, reenergize, and commit each participant’s potential to experiential learning applications.
The Affective Skills Program curriculum creates a positive, structured space to expand self, explore new ideas, cultivate empathy, strengthen connections and develop life skills that will help each individual move through adolescence and beyond. Students have the ability to change their social, academic, and cognitive identifiers which reflect their daily attitude, aptitude, and ability to elevate their altitude of opportunities. By addressing the whole – heart, body, soul, and social connection, the Fearless Affective Skills Program creates an innate ability for young learners to better understand their potential, their fears, and how to attack both.
Through the lens bringing together concepts and content for deeper thinking and meaning; Fearless draws instruction back to the significance of real life application, while providing a standard that transcends specific places, cultures, and times in each student’s development. Fearless includes a user analysis of inner strength development, self control, responsive and reflective skills, life skill development (time management, preparation, follow through, and positive emotion to self-esteem), problem solving (re-balancing the imagination, critical thinking skills, and dealing with stressful environments), and college prep.
