INSPIRING STUDENTS TO BE SOMEBODY! In these challenging times, it takes something special to succeed in a career, and in life. Young people need a strong sense of which they are…what they want to stand for…and what kind of life they want to have. The trouble is this kind of reflection generally falls between the cracks in standard school curricula and traditional character education. We are helping to fill this gap with a program we call BE SOMEBODY! Rather than lecturing kids or telling them what to believe, it takes them on a journey of self-discovery and goal-setting — one that inspires them to reach for the best in themselves. Drawing on all three of Jim Owen’s books, THE TRY, COWBOY ETHICS, and COWBOY VALUES, it’s designed to reach students at an age when new inspirations can elevate their sights and alter their life trajectory.
What BE SOMEBODY! Offers’ partnering youth groups and schools is not a rigid program framework, but a flexible menu of activities, formats and resources. The program is now being used by more than 40 schools plus youth groups and organizations all across the country. Scatter Joy Acres is proud to be part of this program and can offer team building for your corporation to the continued program that we do with the youth in our community.
