Project Future Institute, a 501(c)(3) organization, is dedicated to closing the achievement gap and fostering excellence in education.
Project Future Institute’s Goals
Project Future Institute sponsors the SELF Empowerment Program™ (SELF™).
SELF™ was created to enable at-risk students* to understand that they have the power to change their Self-Stories,* their brains, and their lives. In helping students change their Self-Stories,* the key goals of SELF™ are to enable students to:
- Have enough self-confidence to listen and respond calmly to adversity
- Develop a Surpassing Expectations for a Limitless Future (SELF) mindset
- Form Communities of empowered learners willing to take ownership for their education.
- Use the attitudes and skills learned in the SELFTM Program to improve performance.
*“At-risk students” are defined as students who are below grade level in mathematics.
*Self-stories are the thoughts we use to describe who we are and how we see the world. Example “I am a great dancer.” Or, “I am not good at math.”
