The first day of the B.A.L.L.E.R.S. workshop will be a two-hour session providing a detailed description of the organization's goals and expectations. Every workshop thereafter will approximately be for an hour and a half, which will meet every week. The workshops will utilize PowerPoint slides, mock demonstrations, worksheets, etc. Participants will also learn how to fill out applications, obtain business permits/certificates, create resumes, have a successful interview, and manage finances. The participants will be required to figure out their life goals (staff will assist). Once staff members are aware of the participants life goals then we will teach them how to achieve it. The effectiveness of visualizing who they want to become and believing that they will become it, is priceless. Because it all begins with a thought, your thoughts become your words, your words become your actions, your actions become your character, and your character becomes your destiny.
Every participant will receive a certificate of honor after completion of the workshop. The participants will be encouraged to keep in contact with staff members after completion of the program to support them in guaranteeing their future success.
