Developing Self-Agency

About this life-skill course

Look Within (Developing Self-Agency) teaches students to take ownership of their actions by breaking them down into accessible and easily modeled behaviors. It’s all about unlocking human potential and preparing students to navigate life on their own after high school.

Who's it for?

8th - 12th grade

How it works

Our partners at SkillsLine have developed an "Essential Skills" framework that aligns with 30+ career-ready skills across 5 core competencies based on what employers, colleges, and community leaders tell us are the skills they look for in an ideal applicant.

This course teaches students the first of those five core competencies: self-agency.

Self-agency is a feeling of ownership over our actions and their consequences, and a belief in our ability to take action to accomplish our goals. We build confidence while building character, developing our sense of control and care for ourselves, and for those around us.

This Essentials course breaks down the core competency of self-agency into its most fundamental and actionable behaviors, which each serve as a theme for our 10-minute micro lessons. Students simply conquer each new challenge in the order they are presented, developing and applying their self-agency as they go.

Why this course matters

Self-Agency is one of the most essential, transferable skills in the future world of work. It’s a feeling of ownership over our actions and their consequences, and a belief in our ability to take action to accomplish our goals.
