September is Self-Improvement Month—a great reminder that we could all use some level of improvement in our lives. These changes can range from dietary changes to a self-care day to an entire career change. Self-improvement pertains to so many aspects of our lives and has a great impact on our overall happiness.
The self-improvement industry is estimated to be worth nearly $11 billion in the United States alone. The products offered within this industry tend to consist of books and any merchandise that has the potential to improve personal, mental, or physical health.
Self-Improvement Month can be celebrated in a variety of ways: learning a new skill, reading self-help books, volunteering at a local organization, or pursuing a new career in uncharted territories.
The only essential factor is striving to recognize the areas in which need improvement and taking the necessary steps to achieve that goal.

Prepare for a Bright Future with DEPCO!
In DEPCO’s Career and Community curriculum, students focus on activities relating to career, family, and community. To prepare students for entering the job market, they are asked to create resumes using software, and a mock interview is held and recorded with a camcorder for further review. The importance of family is covered by having the students create a family tree using software, and they use time management software to organize the needs and demands of a family. Students also explore concepts relating to the community. From day cares to senior citizen centers, communities nationwide provide resources for the working family. By taking on the role of a day care facilitator, the students use technical writing skills to create an exercise for children. Students then select an organization that provides support within communities; they research it and design a campaign to promote it.
