Thinking about the future can be scary. With limited resources and experience, it can be even scarier. As high school students, we realized that the jump from high school to the real world is a big leap and not necessarily something everyone is prepared for. We hope that providing opportunities that many youth aren't given access to will give them the confidence to achieve big things and get a jump start on their careers!
Basically, we our organization focuses on bridging the gap between high school and the real world by building meaningful connections between youth and mentors. As the world continues to evolve and new technologies are developed, the education system seems to grow increasingly flawed in its inability to prepare students for their futures. So many students are unaware of the sheer amount of opportunities that are open to them, instead feeling pressured to follow the paths their parents lay out for them. We hope that providing these meaningful experiences will give more youth chances to delve deeper into more "fulfilling" paths and make more well-informed decisions before spending an absurd amount of their time and money in college.
