Academic Smart Goal
S: I want to have a total average of 80 percent when I graduate from high school.
M: An average of 75 percent is achievable, because I am doing pretty well in most class, and I have calculated my average and so far I have a 75 percent average which is very close to 80 percent.
A: I will study a certain amount of time every week to help me achieve high marks to get my average to 80.
R: This goal is realistic, because there are two more years of school for me to achieve an average of 80 percent.
T: I should be able to achieve this goal by June of 2018.
Volunteering Smart Goal
S: I want to achieve 200 volunteering hours by the end of Grade 12.
M: Every Thursday, I volunteer 3 hours at Youth Arts Against Violence (YAAV) which makes 200 achievable.
A: Volunteering once a week, would help me achieve this goal which makes this goal achievable.
R: In one year of volunteering I should be able to have at least 150 volunteering hours done, and I have more than a year to complete. This makes this goal realistic and possible to achieve.
T: In a month, I achieve about 12 hours of volunteering at YAAV. If I want to achieve this goal, I will need to volunteer every month for 12 hours, which will make me achieve 200+ hours of volunteering before Grade 12.
