S.M.A.R.T. Goals

Jaywalker U students are taking one day at a time, a skill they learned in treatment.  But now that they have amassed months of living a day at a time, they are also looking toward a future that is much brighter than the future of their past.  Each new student who enters into Jaywalker U reflects on what they want their future to look like in recovery, their relationships, educationally, socially, and professionally.  Based on these visions, the students will set daily, short-term goals that help them achieve their long-term goals.  In order to make their future goals a reality, we use S.M.A.R.T. goals:  Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic/Relevant, and Timely.  By making S.M.A.R.T. goals, our students are able to monitor their daily accomplishments that lead to future success. Smart guys, S.M.A.R.T. goals!! Janet DeMars Program Director Jaywalker U
