The Patchwork Society
ELITE (Enhanced Life-skills Initiative Through Empowerment) is a program for teens and young adults ages 15-23.The primary outcome is to generate a research-based way forward plan for job, education, and life goals that fit participants’ next stage.
Participants process through personality, strengths, and interests assessments, complete all elements of a self-awareness inventory, conduct the research and exploration necessary to identify life direction beyond high school graduation, identify needs and gaps, begin skill development in those areas, and earn a certificate of completion. Those who demonstrate strong engagement throughout may request a letter of recommendation for college or job applications
