Learn a bit more about the motivation behind our work.

We're all about building happier healthier humans.  We help young people dream big about possibilities and connect the dots on how to create meaningful work that aligns with their unique skills and interests.  



"Your advice on how to go about discovering one's passions and the path to fulfillment really stuck with me. Your words helped me realize I need to embrace the uncertainties and trust the process of self-discovery." 


"I love how you broke down the barriers to dreaming big and how to discover our professional fulfillment, as well as how we can identify our strengths and weaknesses in order to see the possibilities of what we can do and who we can become."


"Before you came to our class, I was starting to lose hope and lost in my journey. Your book, that you gave me, really gave me inspiration and motivation to go on and find myself."

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?

We've created a launchpad for young people to identify their unique skills and interests, uncover  industries 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.
