Why? For many young guys, there’s a massive wall in the way with HOW written all over it. How can I find a college I’m interested in? How can I land a job that I love and still keep food on the table? How can I take pride in the life I’m living? In this diverse and specialized world, kids have more decisions to make than ever before. Everything is changing at warp speed—industries and career paths are being reinvented, and we’re being bombarded with information from all directions.
Amidst all this, it’s hard for a young guy to zero in on his passion, much less focus his talents on building the personal and professional life he dreams of. And once he finds his path, he’ll need the grit to push forward. He’ll need the resilience to pick himself up and keep going, even on the toughest days.
Every young man has a passion he can wrap himself around, something he’s uniquely made to do. Our Futures Planning team will help him not only identify that passion–we’ll support him in bringing it to life. Causeway Futures Planning provides academic and career support from knowledgeable coaches who will help your son identify the long-term vision for his life. He’ll develop self-awareness by learning to look within.
The Causeway support team will get clarity with your son around his interests and values. Then we’ll guide him in developing the specific skills and strategies he needs to make his goals reality. That includes practical stuff like resume and cover letter writing, interview prep, and how to create a social media profile and marketing materials. It also extends to the in-person polish like network building and how to make a great elevator pitch.
But skills alone won’t help your son achieve the career he’s destined for. He needs to get good at process, too. We’ll hold him to structure and accountability as he moves through complex but necessary steps in the journey like his college and job applications.
At Causeway we personalize our program for every new client. It’s tailored to him. We take the time to ‘get’ who he is. Our focus is on his personal development, and that leads to real-world results. Futures Planning will provide your son with the skillset, drive, and confidence he needs to determine and achieve his goals.
“Causeway mentor helped my son build confidence, speak about things he would not speak with the family. They developed a relationship that gave my son confidence, and sense of security that someone was listening to his feelings.”
“Causeway Collaborative provides invaluable services to families and individuals struggling to find direction. I am sober today largely in part to the services provided by Vince and the team at Causeway.”
“It is very difficult to describe the services provided to me as they were a part of a huge transformative period in my life. I do not know if it would have been possible without the help of Causeway, but I know for sure that I am much better off now than I was when we started. I found all of my sessions helpful and I know they fostered a better relationship with my parents than I have had before. For that at a minimum I believe it was worthwhile.”
Futures is career and educational support. It focuses on meeting your son’s unique needs by supporting him as he pursues the goals and objectives he has identified for himself. The Causeway team helps your son clarify his broader plan, and then bolsters him in building the skills he needs to make that plan a reality.
Absolutely. If your son wants to focus solely on Futures, he will still need to complete the standard onboarding process with consult, intake, and feedback session(s). Then he can move forward with Futures. The only exception would be if the team identifies clinical concerns requiring therapy as part of a plan to ensure safe and effective care.
