Youth Purpose

BCHD’s Purpose programming helps students explore their purpose in life and how they can pursue these interests in and out of school. 

People with purpose live longer, have greater life satisfaction and greater functional ability. Purpose is one of the nine healthy lifestyle habits identified by the Blue Zones Project® that helps people live longer, healthier lives. For students, finding purpose is important as they discover their life goals and make career choices. The “Purpose Formula” helps identify your gifts, passions and values: Gifts + Passions + Values = Purpose.

During the Purpose Series, students:

  • Identify purposeful moments and opportunities to thrive
  • Explore natural aptitudes, values and supports in their community
  • Create a purpose statement and action plan toward leading a purposeful life
