TYI encourages parents to take advantage of the S.M.A.R.T. Goals Initiative. This initiative allows TYI to work with the parent, teachers and counselors of the youth to ensure the child is implementing the program curriculum at school and ensure the youth adhere to the signed and agreed upon metrics below.

S.M.A.R.T. Goals for Upcoming School Year

  1. Attendance– My goal is to not be tardy for class or miss more than 1days a month throughout this new school year. I have communicated with my parents the importance of meeting my attendance goal for this upcoming school year. I have set a goal with my parents’ permission not to miss more than 1day a month starting this upcoming school year. This will teach dedication, willingness to meet your goal and the application of creating, aligning and completing my long-term goals.
  2. Behavior– My goal for the remainder of the year is not to have more than 1infraction as it pertains to poor behavior. I am learning ways to deal with peer pressure, seeking adult help and making better decisions as a leader that further aligns with my long-term goal of graduating high school.
  3. Standardized Testing– My goal is to increase my standardize test score by 25%from the previous school year. I understand that grades are important, however standardized testing are a standard for all students in my grade. I want to see how smart or how well I have outworked my peers or identify early indicators of my weaknesses.
  4. Activities– I will participate in at least (1) new activity at school or outside of school that will allow me to network with others, who are likeminded in what activity I like. This will expose me to different cultures or simply aligning with like-minded individuals.
  5. Helping Others– I will volunteer at school as a minimum oncea month by helping my teacher or other students. This will further teach me the importance of helping others.
  6. Counselor/Principle– I will meet with my counselor/principle once a month to ensure that I am aligned with meeting my goals. I will further ask if there are any additional programs within the school/outside the school that will further align with my future goal of graduating high school while doing my very best.
