We want help children to become owners of themselves. We provide experiential quest with the mentorship support.
Making big decisions is tough. Our insights show that for pre-teens and teens in today's changing environment where they face societal pressure that is particularly challenging. Understanding what it takes to make a choice and how to decide is an important aspect of their journey into the adulthood.
FUTURE QUEST is an educational journey that gives kids the right skills and experience to help them understand how informed decisions are made by learning from people they aspire to be. Through this educational workshops that help kids imagine, empathize and aspire to the decision-making process by learning from people in their community (excluding parents) who they know and who inspire them.
Future quest is envisioned as an event where kids explore the lived experiences and decision-making process of adults that are their role models. Events can be organized and facilitated by different stakeholders (schools, municipal organizations and even parents) and the Future quest online platform provides guidelines, checklists, and toolboxes with which events are conducted.
Facilitators provide kids with a quest box- a physical object with instruction on how to conduct the quests. Facilitators also provide the mentors with the recipe of Future quest to help them understand how to interact with kids.
Kids go through the stage of identifying their mentor, learning about mentors' lived experiences and decisions they needed to make and finally reflecting on what they learned from it. They finish the quest writing the letter to their future self.
