My summer goal is to:

Example:  My summer goal is to explore the field of computer science and gain a better understanding of what it entails.

Measurable: How will you measure your progress and know when you have achieved your goal?

I will measure my progress by:

Example:  I'll measure progress by finishing two online coding courses and joining a computer science internship or job shadowing.

Attainable: Is your goal realistic and attainable within the timeframe of the summer?

My goal is realistic and attainable because:

Example:  My goal is achievable as I have access to online coding courses and can connect with local companies for internships or job shadowing.

Relevant: Why is this goal important to you? How does it align with your interests and aspirations? 

This goal is important to me because:

Example:  This goal is important due to my interest in tech and problem-solving. Exploring computer science will help me decide if it's my future path.

Time-bound: When do you want to achieve your goal? Set a specific deadline.

I will achieve my goal by:


Now, break down your goal into smaller steps or actions that you can take to make progress towards it. Write down at least three action steps.


Example: Enroll in an online coding course, such as Codecademy or Coursera, and complete at least two
modules per week


Example: Find local companies offering computer science internships or job shadowing. Contact at least three to explore potential opportunities.

Example: Connect with computer science professionals via LinkedIn or virtual events. Reach out to two for informational interviews about their experiences.


Lastly, think about any potential obstacles or challenges that you might face while working towards your goal. How will you overcome them? Write down your strategies for overcoming obstacles.


Example: Lack of coding experience and knowledge.


Example: Begin with beginner-friendly coding courses and seek assistance from online forums or coding communities when encountering challenges.



Example: Limited availability of internship or job shadowing opportunities.


Example: Extend search to nearby cities or remote options. Contact local computer science professors or professionals for mentorship or guidance.
