You’ve got the job, now comes the hard part: balancing all of life’s competing demands. JobPro: My Life is about YOUR LIFE, where you must make decisions around your work, health, and social life to try and stay on top of it all. Spend a week choosing what to eat, who to hang out with, how to spend your money, and where to spend your time. Practice general life skills in JobPro: My Life and see if you can maintain your professionalism and well-being throughout the week.
Play the game and experience it all, including:
-Explore 8 geographic locations.
-Master the work minigame to earn more tips.
-Choose to engage in activities with friends including playing basketball, seeing a movie, going to game night, and more.
-Make tradeoffs that impact your life: do I cover my coworkers shift or spend time at the community center meeting with a life coach?
-Earn badges through the Skill Arcade and show others that you know what it means to maintain a balanced life.
JobPro: My Life was developed in partnership with the Employment Institute at Auberle. The Employment Institute offers multiple nationally recognized certification programs, employment opportunities, life skill and work readiness training, education services and employment exposure/search services. The Employment Institute works with young adults ages 16+ experiencing barriers to employment.
This project made possible through the generous support of BNY Mellon Foundation of Southwestern Pennsylvania.
The purpose of this game is to engage players in the act of managing life’s many priorities. The game provides a foundation that alongside other classroom activities can result in a positive educational experience.
