Future Problem Solvers
Future Problem Solving (FPS) stimulates critical and creative thinking skills and encourages students to develop a vision for the future. Future Problem Solving Program International (FPSPI) provides the tools and strategies students need to face the challenges of today and the future. What better way to prepare students for their future than by teaching them to think systematically about problematic situations, to gather information to understand the situation, and to evaluate multiple solutions in order to best address the situation? The FPS Program features competitive as well as non-competitive activities in creative problem solving. Future Problem Solving Program International involves over 250,000 students annually from over 40 affiliates in the United States and 12 other countries
CGTY will focus on the Community Problem Solving module within FPS and will adopt a program within our community, while applying the skills taught throughout the FPS program.
Students involved in Community Problem Solving (CmPS) learn powerful lessons about creating change, about dealing with local authorities and organizations, and about making a positive impact. The top Community Problem Solving projects are invited to the FPSP International Conference in June.
