  3. 3. Our Mission 01
  4. 4. We are looking to provide underserved high school kids with the personal and professional clarity needed to effectively kick start their careers. We acknowledge that a fragile socioeconomic status reduces one’s capacity to make mistakes and escalates the difficulty of pursuing one’s goals. By optimizing our student’s discovery process, we aim to strengthen their sense of self, and the confidence that accompanies it.
  5. 5. Program Overview ➔ 22-week mentorship program partnered with Chicago Public Schools ➔ 2 hours meetings each week with our team ➔ Extremely hands-on ➔ Project-based ➔ Assignments to do outside of our sessions ➔ Access to executive coaching staff and licensed therapist ➔ Connections to top scholarship organizations ➔ Networking opportunities
  6. 6. Target Students We are looking for underserved students that lack the resources and access to pursue their goals to the extent they want to. Our ideal student is: ★ Sophomore/Junior in High School ★ Optimistic ★ Independent ★ Academically interested in Business or Tech ★ A Leader ★ Collaborative ★ Proactive ★ Perceptive
  7. 7. Why We’re Different ➔ As a fully student-led program, we are able to foster more personal connections ➔ We dedicate a unique amount of time to routines, habits, loving and understanding one’s self and intrinsic clarity ➔ We understand the everyday problems that each kid might be facing ➔ We know how to leverage your time and take advantage of certain opportunities that are available ➔ We are connecting our students with real tech and business professionals, as well as scholarship and mentorship organizations, providing them with guidance long after our program
