Becoming Your Personal Best: Engagement & Impact
With BYPB, our commitment is to be an effective and impactful resource for our students, educators, families, and communities. Our team has developed an evaluation strategy to proactively understand the BYPB experience. In all BYPB engagements, we employ qualitative and quantitative approaches to capture our participant’s experiences, identify ways to improve BYPB, and measure any attitudinal and behavioral shifts. Below you will see highlights of our ongoing efforts.
In our ongoing survey of families, teachers, parents, caretakers, sponsors from different schools, clubs, teams, and community groups, 100% thought the BYPB experience was:
Engagement & Impact
"COVID-19 has certainly left an impact on our students and we continue to learn about the emotional footprint is has left and continues to leave. Becoming Your Personal Best could not come at a better time. The content for each module provides messaging, information and, activities our students will greatly benefit from, especially during this time. BYPB does a wonderful job teaching about the multiple skills needed for students to build resilience in a manner appropriate for each grade level. The activities are thoughtfully designed for Colorado’s diverse learners and a variety of learning styles.”
-Georgina Owen, ELD Specialist and Title VII State Coordinator, Office of Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education
"I love the format and think it is a great way to build up to reflection. For example, almost every lesson starts with a prompting question, which allows students to begin to unconsciously preview our topic for that lesson, followed by the topic being modeled for them and ending with the reflection of the information that has been presented. I love this format and believe that it is a great way to keep students engaged."
"I think the strengths of BYPB are the actual athletes and their stories. They make the curriculum real...applicable. The videos are very good, too. I like the focus on vocabulary and growth mindset."
"I am grateful for your wonderful course! Your tutors are the best, and I am completely satisfied with the level of professional teaching. I recommend these courses to everyone, and wish you, guys, luck with the new studies!"
"BYPB helps kids identify their strengths and uses athletes to model the skills. When kids are able to identify those things that they excel, or want to excel at, they begin to find their voice, and BYPB leads them through activities that assist with that. The option to use a shortened version of the curriculum and to choose the pieces that made sense for my classroom was very helpful."
"Video reaction? 9.5 out of 10 from my kids on relevancy, interest and coolness factor."
“My job is to make sure military connected children receive the support and resources they need. We’re thankful to see a lot more of this kind of programming...it’s hard to pick which modules we need because they’re all great!“
- Ruth Moore, School Liaison, Child and Youth Education Services, 50 FSS/FSYS, Schriever AFB CO
“This is cool. Being a former athlete, I can relate to everything in the curriculum. Resiliency has been a big theme for us - it’s not just the kids’ problems right now, it’s the adults too!”
- Haley Thomas, Senior Program Director, YMCA of Northern Colorado, Lafayette, CO
"I found that the curriculum promoted and encouraged the kids in my troop to feel more accepted as they are... Further into the program, as the kids shared their experiences and ideas, they found that they had so much more in common with one another; with the takeaway still being that even if they didn’t have things in common, accepting people as they are was just as rewarding. We have a very diverse troop; racially, religiously, and gender expansive. This program introduced a way for the kids to develop tools or a road map to find their voice to express their individuality. What started as a very quiet meeting, ending up being a very fervent exchange of definitions, ideas, and solutions."
