The Power of Purpose
What is the true power of purpose? In turbulent times, a sense of purpose can ground us, nourish us, and inspire us to act. Young people with a sense of purpose are better equipped to use their unique skills and strengths to contribute to the world beyond themselves, leading to a sense of fulfillment and wellbeing. Mentoring programs can play a key role in helping young people to uncover their purpose by initiating conversations that empower young people to follow their passions. Join this webinar as Dr. Kendall Bronk, researcher and Associate Professor of Psychology at Claremont Graduate University, shares what the research says about youth purpose and how adults can support young people in navigating the path to purpose. L-Mani Viney, Executive Director at The Kappa Alpha Psi Foundation, will discuss his program’s approach to “purpose development” by exploring strategies and ideas that foster purpose.
