Vision Statement

Our vision is to inspire students and bring out the qualities necessary to reach their goals and strive for life success in the 21st century. We want to encourage creativity that empowers youth to find the greatness within to achieve and exceed their highest potential.

Mission Statement

At our company, we strive to guide young people to build a new level of confidence and support them in finding a sense of purpose to succeed in life. When students have clear goals, they are more likely to reach beyond what they ever thought was possible.

We work hard to provide the youth with self-help tools that inspire them to thrive in real-life settings. Our team also bridges the learning gap for students to develop a healthy character and skills that lead to employment confidence, preparedness, and motivation.

Grooming the Youth for Success

Many high school and college graduates are under-prepared for the professional world. Recognizing the needs of students for support, our firm helps them strengthen their skills in areas such as critical thinking, self-direction, resiliency, and good decision-making.

Proven Methods to Support Young People

We challenge the youth to think about who they are and what they want to become while taking advantage of the educational resources and support systems around them. Armed with these social-emotional learning (SEL) practices, students gain an appreciation for working together as creators, editors, and producers toward their own success in life.

Our team facilitates applied learning where students directly engage with relevant skills, theories, and models of personal development. Here are some of the foundational practices and thought leaders who inspire our work.

Educational Theories and Best Practices

  • Emerging Adulthood by Theorist, Jeffrey Arnett
  • Social Group Work by Theorist, George Caspar Homans
  • Emotional Intelligence by Theorist, Daniel Goleman
  • Experiential Education by l Theorist, John Dewey
  • Culturally Relevant Teaching by Theorist, Gloria Ladson-Billings

Our Services

Go Beyond Greatness provides a series of leadership development training that empowers youth to establish a pathway to greatness. Students learn how to build self- motivation and become proactive to reach goals.

We provide a series of college preparation workshops that help students to identify the challenges, choices, and benefits of going to college. Students learn how to navigate the college admissions process as well as apply for scholarships and financial aid.

For students that are undecided on the next steps after high school, we teach them about the opportunities available to continue learning. These include vocational training, internships, jobs, and the benefits of enrolling in an educational gap year program abroad.

one-on-one life coaching and academic counseling sessions are used to develop individualized action plans. Then, students can create measurable strategies that will help them meet their goals.

Job and soft skill development training is essential for the professional world. Students gain the opportunity to network and meet entrepreneurs and company leaders, enabling them to learn about the different career options available. This way, they can choose a suitable academic major once accepted into college.
