The SplatterProof Workshop Series is a training compilation designed for young adults that travel the various journeys associated with learning choices. The workshops can be taken individually or combined to fit the specific training need. Economic responsibility is a path that extends beyond high school and can transition into higher education or career planning. Each approach is tailored to a different target audience and set of needs.

  • Airplane Approach– Adult Learners- Reentry to Learning
  • Balloon Approach– Young Adults
  • Bird Approach– Professional Development
  • Kite Approach– Second Chance Learners

Birds are wonderful creatures that come in various species and sizes. Their beauty resides in their independence once they’ve been trained at the nesting spot. Learners are similar to birds because once they have been exposed to the possibilities that accompany lifelong learning and discover their purpose, only the sky holds their limits.

The workshop focuses on key questions:

  1. What is my learning journey?
  2. Who are the right people to ask?
  3. What will I need to prepare?
  4. What if I made some wrong choices?
  5. What are my expectations?

It takes a collaborative effort to get an airplane off the ground and on to its destination. Many tools and manpower hours are used to ensure the safety measures are met. Lifelong learning is also a collaborative process. The foundational steps require putting pieces together to synchronize their efforts on the journey towards economic freedom, professional development, and self-actualization.

The workshop focuses on key questions:

  1. Who starts over at this age?
  2. What does an exit strategy entail?
  3. When I was younger I thought I’d be…?
  4. Do I want a restart or a reboot?
  5. Where do I gain experience in that?

Kites are a thing of beauty as they float overhead and navigate the obstacles that sometimes come their way. Their destinations are a concentrated effort between the person holding the string and the conditions on the day of flight. Second chance learners resemble kites in that same way. They need assistance with navigating the obstacles of bias, soft skills training, personal branding, and opportunities pulling on their strings in order to demonstrate their full potential for flying high.

The workshop focuses on key questions:

  1. How do I explain my situation in an interview?
  2. How do I know whether to apply or not?
  3. What steps can I take to improve my hiring opportunities?
  4. How do I reduce frustration when I am not selected?
  5. What do I put on a resume’?

Balloons increase the enjoyment of any occasion. They are filled with substance and are colorful objects extended in the air. The destination of a wandering balloon is endless. Learners who are new to the lifelong journey have the same incredible opportunities. All you need to begin your journey is attachment to the right string before being released.

The workshop focuses on key questions:

  1. Whose advice should I trust?
  2. Why do I need short & long term goals?
  3. What can I do right now?
  4. How do I create a career plan?
  5. What is effective communication?
