TRAJECTORY: The 10 Challenges of High School that Shape a Teenager’s Future

In total, the 10 challenges comprise the Hero’s Journey that is high school, arguably the four most important years in a person’s life. In four short years, immature 8th graders need to be transformed into college freshmen ready to handle the independence of dorm life. To do this, all teens are sent on a quest that has ten challenges purposefully designed to develop aspects of their character that are proven to be useful for success in adulthood. Parents and teachers of teenagers are the mentors for the journey, because journey success is impossible to achieve alone. Harry Potter has no chance to defeat Voldemort without Dumbledore. Written as a guidebook for mentors of teenagers making their way through high school, TRAJECTORY: The 10 Challenges of High School that Shape a Teenager’s Future provides not only insight into how the challenges present themselves, but also specific, actionable steps that parents and teachers of teenagers can take to help their teens on their quest.

We started Teacher Saves World! to unite teachers and parents in saving the world, one teenager at a time. We're high school teachers and parents of two teens ourselves, so while we love the little ones, that turbulent time between childhood and adulthood is our wheelhouse. We also think high school is four of the most important years in a person's life, and each teen needs an army of caring adults that are dedicated to making sure they're ready to thrive in adulthood. We're taking an Avengers approach: We need everybody to pitch in! We're all superheroes when we care about helping teenagers grow up into confident and capable adults.
