LIFEWORX4ME Adult Feedback

When I was introduced to LIFEWORX4ME I thought what an opportunity and I wish I had been introduced to this concept at a younger age. I can see such benefits for kids’ self-esteem and working with others. The program really helps teenagers come out of a confused state of where they are in life.

Our students really enjoyed themselves and it was great to see them thinking about who they are, their strengths, weaknesses, personality traits and strategies to get along with other personality types.

The Facilitator training allowed me to discover an effective way of delivering to young people, in a manner appropriate for this generation. The content and resources reflect current trends and are relatable to the target audience. I would highly recommend this training for anyone working with youth.

The LIFEWORX4ME program was a great way to consolidate and deepen the understanding students had about their personalities and work preferences. The use of visuals and the dynamic presentation meant that students of all abilities were able to engage with the concepts. The development around their own awareness and increasing their vocabulary in personality traits enabled them to move forward in career awareness and social intelligence.
