Project Vision Workshop Description

Purpose

Project Vision (PV) Workshops focus on guiding selected students through a series of courses that enables them to ultimately become young Servant Leaders.
 

Mentors

Project Vision Mentors undergo continuous, methodical training that allows them to expand their knowledge of leadership development in young adults. Chosen students are then guided through this progression by these skilled and committed PV Mentors.
 
Each charter campus as a general rule appoints one male and one female mentor.
 

Mentees

Project Vision Mentors carefully screen students at the campus level and gather a list of potential PV Mentee candidates. After thoughtful consideration, PV Mentors mutually nominate one male and one female PV Mentee per campus. The final Mentee selection is completed after the student undergoes a rigorous interview session with the Superintendent.
 
PV Mentee Groups are classified by generations. Generation I Mentees are succeeded by Generation II Mentees and so forth. Subsequent generations are initiated on a yearly basis. Each PV generation can participate in six statewide workshops over a three year period. Mentees attend two workshops per year.
 

Curriculum

The Project Vision Curriculum integrates three major principles:
  • Values,
  • Life Skills, and
  • Servant Leadership.
 
Through the statewide workshops, PV Mentors introduce these concepts to the Mentees. The curriculum model includes instructing PV Mentees in two courses under each main concept. That is each major principle contains at a minimum two courses. (Example)
 
Value Principle:
  • Course I
  • Course II
 
At the campus level, PV Mentors program activities throughout the course of the academic year that encourage Mentees to implement what they have learned and internalized from the workshops. Mentors document, monitor, and assess, the Mentee’s individual growth and through objective observation substantiate how the Mentees advance from one level to the next within each of three curriculum principles.
 
Individual Mentee progress is varied, thus the curriculum model contains sufficient flexibility and allows each Mentee to evolve accordingly. The key feature are the PV Mentors. They must be innovative in creating probing activities at the campus level that will continue to support the Mentee’s development of leadership skills.
