PEAK DISCOVERY is a short and direct wake-up call in a compact 15-hour Course. It presents the reality of the adult world by guiding students to discover the path to a reasonable lifestyle. They’ll create a detailed budget for all the major expenses in a normal life, take a quick survey to identify their preferred job and career options, compare the earning power of those jobs to their lifestyle budget, and discover how their education and personal choices will qualify them for those jobs.

Youth goals become grounded in reality and guide all decisions.

The messages are, “Your choices create your future. In that future, education, work, money, and lifestyle are all connected – and you decide.” Peak Discovery is ideal for any situation or context where students can benefit from additional commitment to school, where they are acting impulsively without their best interests in mind, and where they can’t see beyond the next two hours.
