Growing up is full of challenges, contradictions, pressures and opportunities. It has always been this way, but these days, everything seems to be on a much larger scale. Positive, productive role models for young people are harder to find. Career choices are no longer simple. And the critical thinking skills necessary to making the best career choices are not always taught in school. PX2® is The Pacific Institute’s® main program for young people aged 12-19 years. It builds on the core curriculum and presents it in a way that resonates with this target audience.
How does it work?
The program is delivered by a Pacific Institute® qualified facilitator using short video bursts, group activity, discussion and personal reflection. The content is vibrant and colorful, with a music video “feel” incorporating animation, graphics and music. There are 12 well-designed units typically delivered over a 12-14 hour period.
Studies have shown that with no goals of our own, we become susceptible to the loudest voice around us – whether it’s good for us or not. PX2® teaches the art and science of goal setting combined with a thorough understanding of just how we think, so that our young people come away with self-confidence, self-esteem and a strong ethical center.
What can you expect?
It is one thing to know “the right thing,” but it’s quite another to have the confidence to act on it. As parents or guardians, we are constantly on the lookout for negative influences in the lives of our children. The challenge is to build strength of character and strong self-belief so that young people can stand up against these influences and maintain confidence in their own decisions.
PX2® is a life-changing experience, equipping individuals with effective thinking skills that act as a springboard to a successful future. The program can be delivered very flexibly according to the needs of the group/organization.
