How is the FYG learning journey personalized to each student?
FYG’s learning journey is personalized from the very beginning, when students take the FYG Lifestyle Assessment. This assessment helps students better understand themselves now and prepare for the future as well. Students who take the Lifestyle Assessment determine their unique Lifestyle based on their interests and personal strength, develop greater self-awareness of their own identity through a process of self-discovery and reflection, and begin the journey to a greater understanding of who they are now and who they want to become. From there, their journey officially begins! Every activity a student completes helps further personalize their journey according to their individual responses. In particular, our Chat-based and survey templates are designed to capture each individual response in order to share those insights with learners, directly. Each behavior, like, and click is a data point used to shape the learner’s profile. But above that, learners have the agency to refine that profile and “choose again” because, after all, self-awareness is a journey. Additionally, at specific moments throughout the experience, students are asked to “heart” the content or attributes they resonate with most in order to refine their personal results. This is all balanced with constant exposure to “unlikely” aligned content in order to continue to provide options students might otherwise be limited from. Educators have full visibility into students’ personalized experience through their Educator Dashboard, and can help guide their discovery journey along the way.
How long is the Find Your Grind curriculum?
The Find Your Grind curriculum is either 9 or 18 units in length, covering topics such as brand and network, mindset and balance, and financial literacy. Each unit provides 1-2 hours of independent student learning, and is designed for students to spend additional time exploring FYG’s robust library of mentors, careers and lifestyles. FYG also provides supplementary lesson plans and offline resources to engage students in the classroom; these resources add additional instructor-led time if the educator chooses to utilize them. Ultimately, FYG is designed to fit your unique needs – whether it is used as a supplemental resource or the primary curriculum for your class.
How do Find Your Grind’s mentors work?
FYG’s diverse mentors provide candid advice on how they got started and steps to get there. Students can dive deeper into their stories by watching 130+ hours of on demand video content and reading in-depth, exclusive interviews to get a behind-the-scenes look at their journeys. Students can access this content through the ‘Explore’ section of FYG for Education.
Where does FYG source their career information from?
FYG has built the most relevant database of careers that represent the future of work. Our library of fastest-growing careers is constantly growing, and delivers up-to-date information on salary, work expectations and more. FYG’s industries are sourced through the National Career Clusters Framework, U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Handbook, the U.S. Department of Labor/Employment and training Administration’s O’NET online website, and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) System.
