Empowering Families for a Brighter Future!
Without a plan, visions often go unrealized. If Not Now…When? is a vision planning program that focuses on helping people forge a path towards turning their dreams into reality. This customizable program is for everyone…even children. During these workshop sessions (ranging from 1 day to 8 weeks), participants uncover their vision through reflection and journaling. They go on to create vision boards and then formulate SMART goals to cultivate their vision plan. A 90-day action plan is then developed so that participants define the steps that must be taken to achieve their goals. The program culminates with a “Note to Self” and a Life Celebration to commemorate where they have come from, where they are, and all that they will achieve. As a parting gift, participants receive a book, a “life survival kit”, and a resource list containing names, phone numbers, and websites of local businesses as well as online resources that may be useful on their journey while continuing to achieve their goals.
