We bring the mission to life by believing everyone should have access to intentional career education that helps them reach their fullest potential. Through our industry specific learning communities, rising young professionals and entrepreneurs transform their lives. In particular, we focus on select industries, including fashion, construction, interior design and mural painting (where Black and Brown leaders are underrepresented).
Each career education program is small by design to ensure members of the Mission Accomplished Transition Services team as well as industry coaches and advisors better know the strengths, weaknesses, and needs of each student. The increased level of attention allows us to customize programming, foster a tight knit community, and serve as stronger, more in tune mentors, educators and role models.
Classes are designed to inspire students to foster a supportive learning community by learning together while challenging each other to authentically and unapologetically prepare for their desired career path; event if people in their lives down play their journey.
All programs support:
- personal growth
- professional development and advancement
- knowledge and skill application in real life career and business situations
- career and small business exploration
- opportunities to connect with respected industry professionals
- connection to opportunities to be hired as apprentices, employees or consultants
Our carefully selected industry coaches and advisors, assist students with establishing and achieving measurable goals. During coaching sessions students gain clarity on next steps, their passion, their purpose, and develop confidence in their ability to lead their transition into the global workforce, higher education and a life of giving back.
Students who participate in our intensive teen or advanced institutes are paired with coaches who provide 1-on-1 coaching that challenges them to define the career(s) they want to pursue, who they are and how they want to show up in the world (brand identity), why they exist in this world and learn how to benefit from interdependent relationships with coaches, peers and mentors. Together, the students work as a team to design a customized industry-specific action plan with clear goals, making the right connections and gaining access to opportunities that will lead to employment in their desired industry.
Our coaches are like sports coaches, they develop relationships with their “players”, provide instructions, assist with locating and connecting with resources then encourage them to get on the “field” and use their skills and knowledge to win the game of life.
The Mission Accomplished team serve as mentors who assist students with establishing preliminary goals before being paired with industry coaches and advisors while assisting them with navigating through their personal and professional lives.
Collectively, the coaches, advisors and mentors serve as sponsors by using our influence within our networks to give students access to influential people, meaningful careers and business opportunities and assist with all or some of the costs for professional development opportunities, equipment, and supplies.
