Executive Functioning Skills
Travelers will learn & gain confidence in the practical application of logistical skills that they can take into every day life. These skills aren't something that can be taught in a classroom or by reading, so we emphasize practical experience whenever possible.
For example, travelers might have to research dinner options, negotiate with peers, check to see if the restaurant fits within their budget for the week, and plan how to get there on public transportation.
We focus primarily on these areas:
- Sequencing and Processing: Gathering information, prioritizing that information and then acting on it
- Time & Money: Budgeting, time management and practicing value judgements
- Problem Solving: Thinking through the steps required to achieve a goal, readjusting expectations, and being persistent.
