  • Going for the Goal

    K-12 Education
    Going for the Goal teaches life skills to middle school students through ten, hour-long workshops, taught by USC undergraduates or by high school students. Leaders are first selected and trained, then sent to a middle school classroom where, for ten consecutive weeks, they implement the program. The leaders receive weekly supervision in workshop content and leadership skills. Thus, there are two targets for the intervention: USC undergraduates/high school students and the middle school students. Both are taught life skills, while the leaders have a service-learning experience. The program takes place for one school semester.
