The Power of Vision Model is a “bridge” between current reality and desired future. The model helps create clear purpose and sense of direction in life upon which future decisions, actions and resources are based. The model helps young people to go through a process of self-discovery, draw their vision, break it down into stratified life goals, identify required resources, act on their vision and track progress using simple methodologies. Through the model, young people examine their current social, economic and health behaviors, determine what behavior is “now” safe and productive, and then commit themselves to action. Commitment cards signed after training are a basis for peer support and mentorship.
