The Problem

Traditional college readiness programs provide college-level coursework without addressing the realities of campus culture, and What It Actually Takes to thrive within the campus community - leaving the student with a false sense of readiness once he/she arrives on campus. On the other hand, Career Exposure Programs are relegated to “Industry-In-A-Box” competitions. Students rarely gain insight into the daily business operations which may help them discern if the company or industry is a good fit for their interests.

Our Solution 

To Align with nonprofit organizations and industry funders that seek to immerse students into real-world learning experiences anchored on university campuses. Our goal is to expose teens to what it takes to thrive at a particular college while expanding the students view of career options
