Arm your students with the skills today’s employers are looking for.

Investing in the Future

You have spent countless hours investing in the lives of your students in order to best prepare them for life outside of academia. Along with their parents, you want them to find fulfilling work that affords them opportunities for growth and financial stability. With the ever-evolving workplace dynamics, the transition from student to professional isn’t as clear anymore.

Did you know that according to a recent Gallup poll only 11% of US business leaders feel students are well prepared for their workplace? So it’s no surprise that over 80% of students graduate college without a full time job lined up.

Our goal is to partner with you in offering a comprehensive program geared specifically towards Millennials and Gen Z to best prepare them for the workforce and what employers are looking for. We believe this curriculum is a perfect complement to their current educational experience. Options are available for online video curriculum, in person live workshops, and hybrid programming.
