As many Personality Dimensions® facilitators are aware, we have an ongoing commitment to continuous research and development of Personality Dimensions® materials. For the last year or so we’ve focussed that commitment on recognizing the diverse needs of the youth population and developing materials that support the very timely and much needed Youth Employment initiatives across the country.
Following extensive beta testing this past Fall – with our sincere thanks to all who participated – it’s my real pleasure to announce that the PD for Youth™ online assessment is now available! The accompanying PD for Youth Foundations™ Facilitators Guide will be available on February 26th.
Want to take a test drive of the PD for Youth™ online assessment? Email or call us, and we’ll be delighted to provide you with a complimentary credit on your online account.
What makes the PD for Youth™ online assessment and Foundations Facilitator Guide unique is that they were designed for youth in youth employment and/or career development settings. Unlike the classic materials, PD for Youth™ is tailored to suit the needs and experiences of this age group, encouraging them to explore their values, how they see themselves while learning, with their friends and family and in the world of work. Facilitators can adapt the content of the Foundations guide to suit the direction and time frame that they need to work effectively with their youth group.
In addition to leading your participants through an introductory Personality Dimensions® workshop, the Foundations Guide also walks you through a career building application workshop.
- Identifying key strengths brought to the workplace by each colour
- Preparing for an informational interview
- Exploring job search methods
Handouts and PowerPoint® presentation for both the introductory session as well as the career building workshop are all included. The PD for Youth Foundations™ Facilitators Guide is packaged onto a USB drive for portability and easy access on current technology.
I can’t speak for anyone else, of course, but I am personally delighted to be able to bring these great, immediately useful resources to you.
Yours, from the back office.
