GELL: Next Steps
"It's been hard thinking about what comes after [this] and you had a great way of getting me to find a foothold to begin thinking about moving forward." —GELL participant, recent college graduate
53% of college graduates under 25 don't have work, and those that do are changing jobs more rapidly than ever or working in a rapidly changing environment where they have an unprecedented amount of responsibility and control. This new world of work presents both an opportunity and a challenge for recent high school and college grads.
This 8-week program is designed to help 18-25 year olds get a purchase on their goals and self-direction as they head out into the workplace economy. The group works in a facilitated peer-to-peer format to:
Gain insight into future possibilities and visions
Identify strengths and interests and tie them toward possible directions
Define practical steps and immediate actions
Decrease isolation and build inspiration
Past participants on their experience...
"I learned a lot about myself and my aspirations . . .I cannot thank you enough."
"GELL provided me with a space to express the roller coaster of emotions I've experienced since graduating, and helped keep me grounded knowing the there are others . . .who feel similarly."
