Kansas City, MO, April 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The DeBruce Foundation and Up Your Creative Genius have launched “Draw Your Future with Agilities,” a free, online video tutorial to help individuals build self-awareness and agility to navigate the future.

The video tutorial prompts users to discover their work strengths and interests, or “Agilities” and then guides them through a process to literally draw the future they would like for themselves. The Foundation hopes it's a resource for anyone at any age - it can help those who will need to pivot to new careers or high school teachers/professors who are looking for varied content for remote learning.

"Taking the time to draw and color my future allowed me to connect more with the emotional aspects of my current and desired realities. It's hard to envision what the future will look like right now; this tool helped me nurture growth in myself and has set me up to be flexible, agile, and ready for the challenges ahead!" – Francesca, college student.

The tool encourages users to take their time, pausing when needed, to complete the action steps.  The video can be a way for individuals to practice wellness, establish goals, and expand their pathways for the days ahead.

“It might be hard to imagine your future right now, and we’ve developed a new resource to help you prepare for what’s ahead,” said Dr. Leigh Anne Taylor Knight, Executive Director and COO of The DeBruce Foundation. “Now is a great time to invest in yourself, take time to process, and dream.”

“Draw Your Future with Agilities’ can help you envision the future YOU want, and create an action plan to get there,” said Patti Dobrowolski, founder of Up Your Creative Genius. “Drawing can unlock our creative potential and ability to achieve our goals.” 

“Everyone is needing to be more agile in order to prepare for the road that lies ahead of us,” said Darren Woodruff, Senior Director with The DeBruce Foundation. “And, just like any challenge, this unprecedented time gives us opportunities.”
