Join our team!

Help young adults gain the confidence, clarity, and direction they need to succeed.

Who We Are

We are on a mission to help high school graduates learn about themselves so they are better prepared for college and beyond. We use our coaching methodology to meet students where they are so they can identify what interests them in a proactive way. Our graduates talk about how this program changed their lives, leaving them better prepared for what is ahead, even if they don’t have all of the answers.

How We Work

We are a group of hard-working, fun-loving people who take our jobs seriously but like to laugh along the way. We are passionate about empowering young adults with the skills and know-how to succeed in the real world. Our students inspire us every day and fuel the work that we do.

We are open-minded and open-hearted. We value community, diversity, and inclusion. We live the same values as we teach our students: growth mindset, bias towards action, goal setting, and accountability. We like kind jokes with a side of sarcasm. We are open to feedback and self-improvement. We continually challenge ourselves to become better as individuals, colleagues, and a team.

We Are Hiring!

We believe there is a gap in every young adult’s journey: the gap between high school and their next step. Who am I? What do I want to do? How can I make the most out of college? How do I succeed without the structure of high school? If you’re someone who looks back and thinks, “I really wish I took some time to think about who I was before I jumped into [college/work/life],” this is an opportunity to join a team that’s doing just that — closing the gap and helping ambitious high school graduates gain the tools, skills, and habits they need to define their own path to self-reliant adulthood.
