Phase I


ANIMATE MY ACTION PLAN

Royer Studios developed Animate My Action Plan as a way for Youth ChalleNGe cadets to gain 21st Century workforce skills, develop a career path, and to serve as a gateway to higher education. Through a three-phase STEAM-based curriculum, cadets have the opportunity to explore careers in the areas of science, technology, engineering, arts, and math and expand their potential for successful and productive futures. 

 

 

 

PHASE I - DREAM

In Phase I, cadets reflect on the consequences of their choices and decisions and learn the value of taking responsibility for their results. Acknowledging their power to create the future, they identify goals and dreams to strive for post-graduation. By working in teams to create animated short films illustrating their future plans for success, cadets combine their talents and focus their efforts on completing the project in a short amount of time.

To promote positive peer interaction, cadets work together to complete all steps of the production.

  • Writing scripts
  • Creating original artwork
  • Performing voiceover
  • Animating films on an iPad
  • Editing films in iMovie

Through the process, they empower themselves, each other, and at-promise youth to make positive change; to create an action plan for life success - at Youth ChalleNGe and beyond.

This experience truly embodies the best concepts of youth development, service learning, and the acquisition of 21st Century job skills.
