Coaching Purposeful Direction

We help young people build resilience, uncover and pursue their professional passions and develop networks of people that can help them along their journey.

Simply put, we help them answer the ultimate question "What do I want to do with my life and how do I get there?"

Finding Purpose, Fulfillment and Happiness

Trying to answer the question "What do I want to do with my life?" can be scary. In most, it produces fear and anxiety and can even be detrimental to one's mental health. Our framework helps young people remove fear, build fortitude and develop a plan toward an industry they're passionate about. Feeling aligned to your work builds confidence and self worth. Who doesn't want that?

Our Founder and Executive Director, Tyler Lafferty, is a serial entrepreneur with businesses in the digital advertising, media, health and fitness industries. For more than than twenty years he's also been following his own passion by helping students dream big and discover new career opportunities through his mentorship, speaking in classrooms and developing an online platform connecting professionals and educators called Access2Experience.

He's taken all of his experiences, along with the expertise of our Program Director, Lisa White, 28 year veteran of the Spokane Public Schools, and developed a launchpad for young people to identify their unique skills and interests, uncover an industry they're passionate about and teach them how to build productive relationships with businesses and people in the industry who can help them validate their decisions and build their professional network.  We also introduce them into the purposeful work of serving others through volunteerism.
