Implementing Discover You™
Sustainable & Cost Effective | Tailored to Your Needs | System-Wide Implementation
First, build foundational support for the Discover You™ program. Determine who at your school, team, club, or organization will be a champion and create a team committed to supporting implementation.
Next, create a plan. Determine your vision, what needs you hope to address, resources, budget, etc.
Our Discover You™ consultants can assist you during this organizational process.
Next, your team partners with Discover You™ to determine how best to implement.
Questions to consider:
• How many adults do you want to fully train as Discover You™ coaches?
• How many students do you want to experience the Discover You™ curriculum?
• How will you support your entire school, team, club, or organization?
• Will you engage parents?
• Would you like to leverage Discover You™ for professional development opportunities?
• Do you hope to have trainer level coaches?
Discover You™ offers intentional programming at a variety of intensity levels and formats so that your team can truly customize how best to serve your community. These include, but are not limited to: the Discover You™ coach training, professional development, online workshops, newsletters, podcasts, infographics, and articles.
Anytown High School chooses 6 teachers to experience the comprehensive Discover You™ training program. Upon completion, the implementation team at Anytown High consults with Discover You™ to determine how best to begin leading workshops with students while also supporting the entire school community. In the first year, 1,250 students experience Discover You™’s Forging Futures program during class. School staff participate in 5 hours of professional development led by Discover You™, with topics chosen by the school. The implementation team works with Discover You™ to provide resources and messaging to parents, helping them to understand the concepts their children are learning. All school staff receive the Discover You™ newsletter, which provides valuable resources and free opportunities such as online workshops, a podcast, articles, etc. In the second year, the Discover You™ coaches become Discover You™ trainers while continuing to deliver workshops with their students. In year three, those trainers deliver the Discover You™ training to additional teachers, creating more Discover You™ coaches and a self-sustaining system.
Continuous improvement and adaptation is essential for quality programs. Leverage the data collected as part of the Discover You™ process to inform your choices moving forward.
