Have you ever dreamed of doing something but never got a chance to do it? Well the clients at St. Andrew Bay Center were introduced to “Dream Boards,” a creative way to for them to express their goals and aspirations using pictures and words for their possible future.
One of those clients got a chance to be a teller for the day at the beach location of Centennial Bank. She expressed an interest in learning about money and banking as a career after recently attending a training class titled “Dream Inspired Planning.”
Dream Inspired Planning is about about a person planning and visualizing future goals and dreams leading to employment . A Dream Board is a tool used in this process. It is a collage of images, pictures and affirmations of one’s dreams and desires, designed to serve as a source of inspiration and motivation, and to attain goals.
