WHAT IS A VISION BOARD?
A vision board is typically a poster with pictures and words that represent a person’s dreams and goals. It allows the individual to get a visual picture of where they would like to go.
Vision board events have been used as a means for an individual to consider their goals and begin to lay them out for them to see. Vision boards often use magazines, photos, word clippings, and/or inspirational words to represent what an individual wants to experience in a given period of time. A vision board may be created for a year or multiple years.
CONNECTION TO MLK DAY
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is known for his leadership during the Civil Rights Movement. He and many others imagined a country and world where individuals had equal rights under the law. His dream is still coming alive today. The “I Have a Dream” takes place on MLK Day to remind youth of his impact on the world and how we all have a dream.
