“It’s not if you are smart, it’s how”

These programs help young people discover their “smarts” – the many ways we express our intelligence – and show how smarts can lead to satisfying life and work choices.  Inspired by Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences, Smart Options and Smart Options Plus increase participants’ self esteem and give them a conceptual and practical framework for enriching their lives and shaping their futures. Both programs ignite self-direction, are intuitive, free of jargon and require no training by those who deliver them. Due to their short time demands and flexibility they are readily incorporated into school curricula. They are deliverable by one or more teachers, and students can do them independently or in groups. Parents can help their children.
