Young person looking into the future
Join Us in Supporting Kids in the Middle Future Finance and Technology Workforce Prep Program!
Hello, wonderful supporters! We are thrilled to announce the upcoming September launch of the Kids in the Middle Future Finance and Technology Workforce Prep Program. In a time when our young generation has faced immense challenges due to the pandemic, this initiative aims to make a profound impact on the lives of 15-17-year-olds who have experienced three lost school years. Let's dive into the incredible opportunities this program presents for our youth and their communities.
Coaching for Personal and Professional Growth
During the first half of the school year, these bright minds will receive invaluable coaching from professionally trained and licensed coaches who are trained in Core Energy Leadership tools that tap into emotional intelligence. The program understands the unique struggles these students have faced and will provide guidance, life skills masterclasses, with emotional support to help them regain their footing. Through this phase, we aim to ignite a sense of purpose and instill the belief that their dreams are still within reach.
Mentoring in STEM Fields
The second half of the school year will bring an exciting phase where the students will be matched with mentors in related STEM fields. Imagine the transformative power of connecting these ambitious individuals with professionals who can guide them along their chosen paths. These mentors will serve as beacons of inspiration, helping the students navigate their future career choices, set realistic goals, and build the necessary skills to excel in finance and technology.
The Impact on Students
The Kids in the Middle program will empower these students to reclaim their educational journey. By addressing the academic gaps and providing personalized coaching, we will witness their confidence soar as they develop the resilience to face any challenges ahead. The program will equip them with the skills needed to thrive in the finance and technology sectors, opening doors to promising careers that were previously out of reach—which, for marginalized kids living at or below the poverty line, sets them up for success in pulling themselves and their families out of poverty.
The Ripple Effect on Peers, Family, and Teachers
As these students embrace their potential, their newfound passion and drive will undoubtedly inspire their peers, family members, and teachers. Through their success stories, they will become beacons of hope, motivating others to overcome setbacks and pursue their dreams with unwavering determination. By supporting these young individuals, we are investing in the betterment of the entire community.
The Strengthening of Communities
Communities thrive when their young members are provided with opportunities to succeed. By supporting the Kids in the Middle program, we are investing in the future workforce and economic growth of our communities. These bright, talented individuals will become leaders, innovators, and change-makers, using their skills to create positive impact and contribute to the advancement of society as a whole.
