Below are the topics covered during this phase:
In these sessions, participants are guided on discovering their core values and learning the importance of honoring them daily. Students are also given a career aptitude assessment that is based on a characterization of their personality in terms of the Holland Code personality types. This helps them to understand what kind of work environments and occupations suit them best and provides them with a list of professions and occupations that fit their career personality.
Using decision-making processes – “S.M.A.R.T and H.A.R.D Goals” - that can be applied to all areas of their lives, participants begin setting their academic, career, health, and financial goals. These goals will be later revised and updated over the course of three years, with guidance from their coaches.
This myth is generally interpreted by youth that they are not smart enough when met with challenging work and can lead them to giving up or becoming anxious. When youth believe intellectual ability can be developed, they are more likely to welcome and persist through challenges, and to see them as opportunities to learn.
Participants are presented with scientific peered research information on optimum diets and the positive significance of exercise on brain health.
Content for this lesson is taken from Stephen R. Covey’s book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
The principles presented “ignore trends and pop psychology and focus on timeless principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity.”
Building a solid network of professional contacts is imperative for achieving success and attracting others to you, to communicate effectively and therefore engaging with you is that much easier when one takes pride in personal appearance.
While public speaking can be daunting to most, developing good public speaking skills is an instant attraction to others, most of whom will lack confidence to convey important thoughts and messages. Ambassadors will undertake public speaking practice in this unit to build confidence and to develop sought after leadership qualities that are a key component for achieving success in their chosen career path.
Over a three-year period, coaches will work with their ambassadors by guiding them to further develop their core values, goals, talents and involvement in their community. There are five main activities that Ambassadors will be involved in during this phase.
Ambassadors are also encouraged to pursue Industry certifications that will help them prepare for careers in high-demand and high-wage occupations, such as IT, Healthcare and Business. These programs are designed using courses already available to the ambassadors. And, it puts them on “a clearly defined, national-standard aligned path to explore career options and acquire the technical knowledge and skills to work towards industry-recognized certification and high-demand careers.”

StageOneInAction will conduct an annual Youth Leadership Business Challenge beginning in Summer 2023. This challenge is geared towards developing our Ambassadors in becoming future business leaders and entrepreneurs. Various prizes will be awarded to participants.
They also develop the skill of marketing as they practice ways of inviting friends, family, and the general community to attend their seminars.
These events are also essential to StageOneInAction’s year-round recruitment and retention efforts.
Ambassadors that have shown their dedication to the vision of becoming the best version of themselves will be awarded the center stage! Similar to Ted Talk, StageOne Speaks will be held during our annual International Conventions, where our top Ambassadors from around the world will be given the opportunity to share a talk on their passion, what their journey has been like, and where they are going.
