YouX: A Simple Method for Making Decisions About Life Beyond School (2019 Facilitator Evaluation Edition) (Paperback)
YouX: A Simple Method for Making Decisions About Life Beyond School (2019 Facilitator Evaluation Edition) is the workbook for YouX, a revolutionary career curriculum for high school students based on modeling and testing different workplace experiences rather than "planning" for specific occupations. The curriculum comprises the workbook, the Work Model Canvas tool, and a comprehensive online instructor support system. It adapts for young people the Business Model You(R) work reinvention method, which is used by professionals worldwide for personal and professional decision-making.
What Career Educators and Young People Say
Young people want the security of making wise post-secondary learning decisions, yet they understand that changes in the workplace outpace the ability of universities and other post-secondary learning institutions to adapt. Both career educators and young people say they want a method and tool that is actually used in the workplace and:
- links self and work exploration to life beyond school;
- supports self-adaptation to meet the needs of ever-changing workplace conditions;
- acknowledges that work transcends job titles or tasks, and teaches how work works; and
- is relevant and transferable to all workplaces.
The YouX career curriculum's goal is to prepare young people for work that does not yet exist--and to teach them to be comfortable with this unknown (hence the "X"). They know they will have to adapt again and again to stay current. And to make good decisions, they will need to learn to build robust work models that touch both the head and the heart of their lives.
Imagine enabling young people to move from "career paths" to Work Models--or from "finding jobs" to using their own skills and interests and being compensated for creating and delivering value. These are the critical shifts in thinking enabled by the YouX curriculum and YouX: A Simple Method for Making Decisions About Life Beyond School (2019 edition).
