Future Ready for Grade 7-9

We help students in grades 7-9 to get FutureReady by identifying and exploring their interests, building impactful extracurriculars, critical thinking skills, motivation and work ethic.

Our FutureReady program helps students

Identify and Explore Interests

We analyze children’s responses to open-ended questions on their academic interests, extracurriculars, personal experiences, backgrounds and directed questions on local and global issues.

Identifying different interests we weave them together to develop an exciting personalized project idea and work with students on it. We help students set goals, create a plan, seek feedback, overcome roadblocks, measure success and self-reflect on what they liked and disliked. Based on this, we recommend interest areas to pursue further and develop a plan to scale the project through high school.

Build Extracurriculars

Identifying different interests, we recommend extracurriculars for each student enabling them to explore what they love and build key skills. Using self-reflection tools, we empower students to make choices about which extracurriculars to deepen.

Improve and Elevate Academics

We help students to
- identify learning strategies that have worked for them, and how to apply those to subjects they need to improve in
- identify coaches and courses to help students improve
- expand students abilities in subjects they love, by recommending advanced programs that will help them excel in high school and in competitions.

Develop Critical Thinking and Research Skills

- We evaluate students reasoning and critical thinking skills and recommend areas for improvement.
- We work with students to help them address issues in a logical fashion, reason from premises to conclusion, and demonstrate flexibility to new ideas or information.

Build Motivation and Develop Work Ethic

We first identify barriers to motivation, such as a fear of failure, overwhelming schedules, difficulty focusing, misbeliefs such as ‘talent is innate’ and ‘success should come to us easily if we are talented’.

We then help students to build confidence by reframing beliefs about their abilities that drive effort and perseverance, prioritizing and rationalizing schedules, and avoiding distractions

“I believe starting with the process early really benefited me, something that Kavita advised me to do. Getting into an MBA program as a male Indian, IT engineer is extremely tough and Kavita helped me succeed by digging into my work-ex and co-curricular to create a compelling list of accomplishments, positioning me in a unique way and finalizing a coherent goal (short and long term). Futureworks helped me identify and map my strengths and weaknesses with those of the top business schools and helped my narrow down the list.”

The difference they make is tremendous!”
