The Real Make Over
The Real Make Over is a character development curricula that focus on building quality personality skills from the inside out. The core of this curricula is to teach and help youth understand the importance of having and building good character. We focus on 5 essential character values:
We believe that it is vital to start at the heart and character of a person before we focus on the outer person. “Potential without character is a train wreck ready to happen” (John P. Lakin). Character is so important because it is the inner you, that will drive the outer you! If the inner you is damage, then we have to fix whatever it is in order for you to be the best outer you. A car might look great on the outside, but if the engine is damaged then the car can not serve its full purpose….it only LOOKS good. The greatness and genius of technology takes place on the inside, the screen and the outer look is eye-catching but the real work takes place at the core of it. After building character then we can really focus on career and life goals. We work to assist and support youth in their life plan so they can be well equipped to transition successfully into their future endeavors.
