Since 2013, The Pursuit Program has been implemented in school districts throughout Pennsylvania. The Pursuit Program develops and prepares students grades 6-12, for success while in high school, college and for life after college, utilizing mentors and their life experiences to help empower them to reach the highest level of success. The Pursuit Program targets students who need extra encouragement to excel in their academics. The curriculum used surrounds the insight that has been written in the best-selling book, “The Pursuit with Patience,” to help educate the students. As a part of the program, each student receives a life skills workbook, called “The Pursuit Workbook.” This life skills curriculum provides the essential steps to success for students. It is constructed around the skills that are acquired from being involved in athletics and demonstrates how to use lessons from team activities in their everyday life to help achieve success.
