The P.A.C.T. is a guided interactive journey designed to engage urban male youth to create a positive self-image, manage conflict, and set goals for personal success by walking through transitional steps of personal perceptions, actions, choices, and effective time management. The P.A.C.T. curriculum is a three-part life skills development series focused on five essential life skill pillars: Personal Awareness, Social Awareness, Self- Management, Interpersonal Development, and Cognitive Development.
Each module can either be utilized as a standalone curriculum or incorporated into a consecutive series teaching program. Likewise, all modules contain a variety of activities and reviews to maintain urban youth engagement while providing an enriching learning experience. Each of these pillars provides the assessment and evaluation framework for identifying critical success indicators through each of the guided activities. A combination of formative and summative assessments embedded throughout the lesson design ensures greater visibility into the progress and transformation of each youth participant. Likewise, standard pre/post surveys are equally essential progress measurement indicators leveraged as part of the monitoring and evaluation process of the P.A.C.T. Life Skills curriculum.
