Preparing Grade 8 Students to Succeed

In JA’s newly updated Success Skills program, students identify and build a toolkit of transferable skills that will enable them to increase resilience and improved outcomes through challenging situations.

Students will:

  • Define what success looks like
  • Identify effective communication practices and techniques
  • Learn how to empathize with others for engagement and connection
  • Develop and awareness of critical thinking and problem-solving skills
  • Understand the importance of continued skill acquisition

So many of the kids came up to me and thanked me saying things like: ‘I understand what a growth mindset is’ and ‘I know how to locate my skills and what I still need to learn’. This is a valuable program and the content is fantastic!
