blueFire PulsaR is a wilderness therapy program based in Idaho that assists young adults who feel like they have no direction in life. Many of their clients have struggled in traditional school settings with social anxiety, stress management, depression, and learning differences that shaped their beliefs about their self-worth and potential. They have had difficulties envisioning a successful future for themselves, let alone setting personal goals to help them get started. PulsaR offers career assessments for every student, that serves as a launching point for a potential path to explore.
In a wilderness therapy environment, young adults are removed from the pressures and high expectations of a fast-paced society, which allows them space to consider their personal goals. While young adults explore their personal strengths and build resilience through adventure activities, they begin to think about how to apply these skills beyond wilderness therapy.
blueFire PulsaR’s career assessment, the Greenwood System 120, looks at several attributes and puts them into an algorithm to identify a student's top career choices, Grit Score, lowest career choices, and a Meyers-Briggs Personality type. The GS 120 career assessment parallels PulsaR’s focus on helping young adults explore their interests, personality styles, values, and possible aptitudes. Results provide a sense of direction for young adults who are struggling to recognize where their strengths may be recognized and valued by others in the “real world.”
While someone may recognize that they are compassionate towards others or that they pay close attention to details, they may struggle to picture themselves as a doctor or as an analyst. Many young adults believe that some of their qualities or experiences may prevent them from entering certain fields, as counselors, lawyers, or law enforcement, however, the experiences that they’ve had played a significant role in determining where they may be successful. Staff at blueFire PulsaR helps young adults find meaning in their experiences and confidently pursue their personal, academic, and career goals.
