The program is built on five essential components: 1. Mind, Body, Spirit 2. Vision Setting 3. Healthy Relationships and Interpersonal Communication 4. Leadership & Service 5. Financial Management By giving the students space and confidence through experiential learning, students are able to identify and manage their emotions, create a clear and compelling vision board, practice the art of communication, identify an issue in the community they would want to solve and create a financial portfolio plan. ”
