JANUARY PROJECT: VISION BOARDS

2021 Virtual Vision Boards

Time to get creative, set goals, and dream BIG! Create a vision board for 2021. Think about how your match can continue to stay connected, and decide together what you will focus on 2021.

Suggestions on how to create a vision board:

  1. Set up a virtual time to get together with each other.
  2. You may choose to make one match vision board or both Big and Little create your own vision board.
  3. Create a list of goals you'd like to achieve in the next year.
  4. Use household supplies; magazines, school supplies, etc.
  5. Be creative and use words, pictures, and drawings to represent your goals and inspire you and your match.
  6. Add motivational “affirmation words” that represent how you want to feel.

Once you have completed your vision boards, send BBBS a photo and description and enter for a chance to win a gift card to a local business!
Email your photos to bbbs@bbbsmilwaukee.org. We will accept submissions January 1-31.

Please contact your Match Support Specialist if you have any questions.
