As parents, one of the best things you can do for your children is to help prepare them for the road ahead. But how do you teach them the valuable academic, social and personal skills they need to really thrive?
The Own It! program is designed to do just that. With fun, interactive online tools and real-life scenarios, Own It! guides teenagers on the path to developing lifelong responsibility, accountability and problem solving skills.
The idea behind Own It! is simple. Leadership skills are always taught in the workplace—why not reach people earlier? The sooner you can introduce better interpersonal skills, constructive decision making and productive habits, the more likely they’ll stick with your kids as they move on to college and careers.
Own It! was developed by corporate trainer Dennis Deaton and educational leader Dana Van Deinse, adapted from Deaton’s award-winning leadership book The Ownership Spirit. The program takes the success principles of Ownership and Visioneering and translates them into training that relates to the challenges kids face today.
“Own it! helped me develop a plan for my future. I am now volunteering at a pet shelter and am planning to enroll in community college so I can study to become a veterinarian.”
“I liked the interactive situation videos where I got to choose what I would do in that certain situation.”
