PURPOSELY CHOSEN TEEN PROGRAM
The Purposely Chosen Program is a facilitated curriculum-based program for teen girls (ages 13-18) that was designed to equip girls with the tools they need to pursue passion, demonstrate leadership, and overcome obstacles they may face.
Due to COVID-19, Limitless Ambition has created an instructor-led virtual program developed to reach the girls in spite of the pandemic or other life circumstances that might hinder in-person participation.
Each session has a topic to guide the discussion and girls will have an opportunity to reflect in their workbook. Programs are typically 8 - 10 weeks and take place during the school day.
The Purposely Chosen curriculum is designed around the Social-Emotional Learning Theory, one of the Ohio Department of Education’s four learning domains that has been found to contribute to the holistic success of a child. The curriculum “educates the whole child” - helping participants acquire and apply the skills to manage their emotions and achieve their goals. The life skills developed support both personal development and academic performance.
To Increase self-esteem, sense of personal control, and promote positive identity and awareness of self
To give participants the tools they need to develop and enhance personal, leadership, communication, decision making, problem solving and social skills
To educate teens about their culture/heritage, and encourage them to take pride in their history
To encourage teens to develop friendships and to build a strong sisterhood within the community
To shed awareness and decrease teen involvement in risky behaviors such as sex, violence, and substance abuse
To increase high school graduation rates and college enrollment/graduation rates in low-income families

THE DREAM KIT
The Limitless Ambition Dream Kit project was started to provide our customer curriculum and support tools to girls affected by trauma. Specifically, The Dream Kit is distributed to girls who are in/transitioning out of foster care or who have been impacted by trauma.
The kit is comprised of a bag, t-shirt, personal hygiene pack, journal, positive affirmation cards, bracelet, self-guided workbook (with facilitator guide) and assessment rubric. We typically partner with community agencies to distribute The Dream Kit twice each year, usually in July and November.
Read about The Dream Kit in the Akron Beacon Journal.

Limitless Ambition Scholarship Program
Limitless Ambition focuses on helping young women overcome barriers to their success. Our organization recognizes and values the crucial role that education plays in helping young women achieve their goals, and because of this, we have established the Limitless Ambition Scholarship to assist girls in Northeast Ohio in overcoming some of the financial barriers associated with higher education.
The scholarship will recognize girls who demonstrate a commitment to their community or who will be first-generation college students. We will award two scholarships for the 2021-2022 academic year in the amount of $500. Nominations must be submitted by a counselor or Teacher. Once nominations are submitted, the student will be contacted to complete an application. Award winners will be announced in Spring.
