DREAM JAMAICA PORTFOLIO

THIS ISN'T SCHOOL WORK, BUT... 

YOU-WORK!

The portfolio will be assessed by your coordinator and you will provide drafts to receive assistance with the pieces. You can contact the respective member of the team. The portfolio is not “schoolwork” but “You-Work”, these activities will help in your development.

Trevon's Take on the Portfolio

 

"At Dream Jamaica, the portfolio represents your personal development throughout the camp. It is a part of our tradition for each student to complete personal development sessions and document their journey.

 

Each section will carry students through a process of self-discovery and allow them to learn aspects of their personality and opportunities for growth.

 

Every year, students complete portfolios that assist them with college preparations, goal setting, and internal reflection that is important to becoming a strong and well-rounded individual. We would hope that this activity will assist in their personal and professional development."
