Bridging the gap between education and employment
Our mission is to bridge the gap between education and employment for young people in Western New York.
By utilizing our services, high school students, recent high school graduates, college students, and young professionals will develop the skills they need to find a career that matches with their passions and skill sets.
Too often, young people are pushed into programs or careers that are a wrong fit for them, leading to stress, frustration, and burnout. Through our brain-based career coaching, we help young people discover who they were meant to be – whether that’s a career that requires college, a trade school, or just immediately entering the workforce.
No path is less than another. Being your own hero means taking control of your life and choosing the path that best fulfills your goals for yourself – not someone else’s goals for you.
Every young adult should receive equal opportunity to pursue the career of their dreams.
