Program: Visionaria for Schools

The Visionaria for Schools Program is designed for secondary school students (ages 14 – 19). It includes activities and lessons that require critical analysis and reflection by students, as well as group discussions around conventional and socially controversial topics. It includes many opportunities for self-reflection, reflections on society and our roles within it. Through the Visionaria program, young people identify themselves within a community and discover their power to confront the problems that worry them the most.

The Visionaria combination of (1) Socio-emocional Learning and (2) Community Problem Solving creates a learning experience that all young people will appreciate throughout the demanding, 21st century.

Why are we doing this?

Because by reading, writing, and sharing your visions, you give other girls the confidence to pursue theirs.

As girls grow older, especially during teenage years, something happens, and they begin to speak their mind less, reporting feelings of inadequacy and fear of rejection. When girls doubt their own judgments they start to lose their assertiveness and optimism. Harvard researchers have coined this phenomena, “losing voice”.

Stating a vision is a powerful way to affirm your values, helping to set your goals, measure your progress, and raise aspirations.
