If such questions are on your mind, then you are in the right place. With Dream Mapping Beyond 8, you can help set your child on a path they dream of pursuing .
As a child, a lot of adult today were told - get a good education, find a nice job and earn a high salary. We were made to believe that only by following standardized paths can we be ‘successful’.
At Beyond 8, we believe opportunities ahead of your child are infinite and constantly evolving. The future of jobs is unknown. And, to find true happiness in life, they need to create a category of one and follow their own path.
Dream Mapping at Beyond 8 is an intimate conversation between young learners, their families and a Beyond 8 expert to capture your child's dream of future experiences they hope to have. It is also to get insights into their strengths, motivations and interests that drive them towards those experiences.
Dream Mapping is an adaptation of the Personal Futures Planning developed at Perkins University. Ideally, every young adult should begin their learning journey – be it in high school or college - with their Dream Mapped at Beyond 8.
Learning is a highly personal act and cannot be ‘provided’; it occurs when it is sought.
By enabling learners to have unbridled dreams, they learn about how they may pursue what they seek. It simply cannot be replaced by the top-down experiences, ideas and prejudices of educators.
Dream Mapping at Beyond 8 is a process of enabling young learners to embark on a journey of experiences that enables them to pursue their passions successfully.
WHAT IT IS:
A road-map to lead young people towards fulfilling lives and financially successful careers. It is designed to identify interests and passions, so that young people can use this road-map to guide their learning journeys and life’s choices.
WHAT IT IS NOT:
Dream Mapping is not a blueprint on how to live or where to study. It is not standardised psychometric-tests or a career-counselling conversation.
