Quick Facts:
How It Works:.

​We work with a campus to identify 12 students that will travel with us once a month to different businesses to meet with top executives. Students first hear from our Stars then play "Junior Advisors" and are given a set of challenges facing the industry or the Star and have to formulate and present ideas to solve current problems. Our executives ask tough questions and this program builds teamwork, problem solving, and public speaking all while introducing students to careers not seen in their neighborhoods.
Next Steps:

  • Campus select 12 students Students get an opportunity to hear from organization's executives
  • Students get an opportunity to hear from organization's executives and become Junior Advisors
  • Students present what they've learned at the end of the year. (parents are encouraged to attend)

In Action

Bridging people

one community

at a time!

Our In Action program is experiential learning at it's finest! We get kids out of the classroom and into businesses to see  how they operate. Kids hear from inspirational executives and have the opportunity to become their junior advisors for a day as they try to solve current problems the business is facing. Kids have the opportunity to create, plan, and present their ideas to staff which challenges them to think like an executive in that particular industry.
