Daily Workshop#1 - Employment Process

The Good Sports - USA Learning the Employment Process workshop is facilitated by Good Sports - USA staff, who offer more than just classroom rhetoric but workforce experience and years of both practical and professional experience. 

This workshop is geared toward teaching your youth participant about various career/ job options in a fun and engaging way.

We start with very basic discussions about where the youth participant is in school and then we begin reflecting chores around the house to be represented in real world jobs/careers and on a resume.  Each day of group discussions builds upon the prior session in which the youth participants are engaged in conversations aimed at enhancing both their hard skill and soft skill knowledge.

In addition, youth participants take part in pre- and post- discussion quizzes in order to demonstrate their mastering of the knowledge about the various aspects of the employment process.

Daily Workshop#2 -
Health & Fitness




The Good Sports - USA Health & Fitness workshop is administered by certified athletic trainers and professional nurses.

This work shop is geared toward teaching youth participants the “who, what, when and how” of stretching, exercise and the importance of a healthy diet, hygiene and personal care.

Youth participants take part in light stretching and exercise activities where they're taught proper form and technique. Also, trainers give way to engaging youth participants in individual and team competitions that are designed to increase each participating youth's self-esteem and motivation for success. 












Professional nurse consultants engage youth participants with informative tips on developing healthy eating habits, the basic food groups, proper diet, maintaining good hygiene, getting regular check-ups, etc.
