We believe that every student can be successful, and that every student can be a valuable leader. However, even the most academically-competent students do not have the professional skills that are necessary to excel in the workplace today. We develop these students by complementing their academic successes to be successful.
Each year, numerous students graduate at the top of their classes, whether they be graduating high school or college. Many of these same students however struggle to find jobs upon graduating despite their strong academic resumes. And even if they find jobs, many lack essential professionals skills, and must spend extra time and resources to prepare themselves to lead within a workplace. Currently, students lack crucial professional support due to the high emphasis on academics over professional development. After doing our research, we have found that this lack of professional support results in two outcomes: 1. inefficient and ineffective professionals and leaders, or 2. inability to secure a job. The former outcome results in both employers and employees investing time and money into training professionals; the latter results in mental illnesses and personal instability. Furthermore, our society needs valuable leaders, and due to the lack of resources provided to our bright students, we are developing inefficient and ineffective individuals. We need leaders who are well-rounded and both academically and professionally competent so that they can make positive contributions within society and influence others to do the same.
