IABL (Individual Assignment Based Learning)

IABL (Individual Assignment Based Learning)

Individual Assignment Based Learning is our proprietary methodology that helps individuals gain confidence, develop a network of relationships within our community, and learn the world of commerce, all through an individualized assignment catered to each Citizen’s unique passions. Whether it is a podcast, book, movie, TV show, radio show, painting or other type of creative services project; we discover what motivates and drives each Citizen. By working on their own IABL as well as helping other Citizens with theirs, valuable teamwork skills are learned. This is a crucial piece of our overall program.

Community & Social Interactive Skills

In order to live life abundantly, you must learn to become an integral part of the community and create positive interactions with others. On The Avenue works with our community partners, like Nashville SC, to provide amazing experiences for our Citizens. Our integrated community partnership with Nashville SC found our Citizens practicing with the team; working as a sideline reporter for a home broadcast; working in the booth for a regional broadcast; leading to a visit to our facilities by their players and admin to take part in our podcast, No Edits” No Filter. Our design department also designed a t-shirt and image that Nashville SC used in their social media.
