Dependable Strengths® for Educators

Strengths Discovery for Youth

In our Strengths Discovery for Youth classes participants will:


  • Utilize “good experiences” or stories to help students learn about their strengths and the strengths of their classmates

  • Naturally reduces bullying because youth will understand and value other’s strengths

  • Students will build confidence in their unique strengths and be able to articulate those to others

  • Students will understand how to keep growing in their strengths and use that knowledge for networking, employment or gaining new experiences

  • Students’ self-esteem will increase and they will feel more empowered to believe in themselves for their unique abilities

  • A report of their strengths will be created and they can use this for a resume, networking, and applying for scholarships

  • Interview skills, networking and connection scripts will be practiced increasing their confidence in looking for work, and talking with adults about their strengths


In the classroom, this workshop can be formatted to fit 9, 50-minute sessions, or any configuration that you have available.

“Mrs. Johnson and Mrs. Christian provided my class with an unique insight on how to look at their lives.  Through meaningful lessons, my students were able to identify specific strengths that they may not have realized were strengths in their lives.  Students took their dependable strengths to create a report to promote themselves and now they are working on a meaningful project to share with our school.  In my Leadership class, there is so much growth in the way the students handle themselves, students show more confidence, and are taking ownership for their activities in class.  I would recommend this class to anyone who wants to find and utilize their strengths in everyday life.”
