Notice the two photos of clouds above,they are both photos of clouds but they are very different. Also, every person is very different; they may be the same age, live in the same town etc. but they differ greatly. Everyone is unique, their skills, their priorities, their life experiences and their perspective view of the world is unique to them. Questwell's approach is to customize each class to the uniqueness of each individual within the group, mentoring each of the 3 individuals within the group using their learning style. Learning groups are small with only 3 -7 individuals in a group. We do group activities that teach advocacy, how to talk to an employer, social skills and workplace etiquette. Our approach is to use games to solidify learn and mentoring techniques. Our goal is to encourage each participant to explore who they dream to be. How they can fit into the working world and how to map the path to get them to where they want to be; all while fitting into the realistic labor market demands.
