Goal Management

Group Lessons

The fifty-minute lessons on goal management are in this section of Step-It-Up-2-Thrive. The five lesson series teaches youth about the science of goal management, and provides an opportunity for youth to practice selecting goals, pursuing strategies and shifting gears when the going gets tough.

When youth start to think about their actions and adapt their behavior to internal cues and environmental feedback... ...this self-regulation is at the core of identity development and attainment of goals.
