Style and Concept
What character, tenor, or spirit do you wish to convey?
Success; education; motivation; breaking down barriers; learning; achievement; fun; youth.
Are there specific words or phrases you do not like?
We CANNOT use words associated with non-cognitive skills (grit, self-control, persistence, etc.) or the returns on education (college, degree, etc.) or Chicago-related terms. Additionally, the name cannot be widely used by any program throughout the United States or abroad. This program will be a widely circulated economics field experiment.
Are there specific words or phrases you like?
It is key to include the idea of success and achievement. Additionally, it would be fantastic if it had a fun acronym by which to call the program (see BAM: Becoming A Man as an example).
Do you have other info you want to share?
This naming is not for a traditional company name. We are looking for a title for a new program for teens that will be part of a natural economics experiment. It will run in and around Chicago among low-income communities in the following three years. The program is for youths and their parents to succeed - graduate high school etc.
The PDF attached is the grant proposal for the experiment. Please glance over it. The Central Research Questions and Background and Significance will provide a more accurate overview of the project and hopefully will provide a good idea of the type of project name we are seeking. The following is the introductory paragraph to the proposal:
We propose to develop a 2-year, in-school program for disadvantaged 7th-9th grade students that builds intrinsic motivation to succeed through a focus on non-cognitive skills. Components of the program include reducing informational and experience barriers, role modeling, goal-setting, building self-efficacy, character development and teaching how to maintain positive social relationships. A parental involvement extension provides further benefits, since it scaffolds and reinforces students learning at home.
