How We Can Help

Is it just us, or has the road from adolescence to independence become really, really, (really) long?   Young people have a lot of hurdles to jump between high school and, um, life.  Millenials and Gen Z's have grown up in a period of unprecedented change.  The path to and through higher education is more complicated than ever, and job search has been turned on its head. Yikes!  How's a young adult to launch?

 

In crafting our services, we've kept the long game in mind.  Our mission is to make people successful in getting to college and through college, moving into careers they actually like, and establishing themselves as full-fledged, blissfully independent adults. 

 

It's a steep climb to self-reliance--you look like you could use a sherpa! Check out our four areas of expertise below. Then keep calm and schedule a free consultation.

Having a college degree is no longer a guarantee of getting a good--or any--job. Responding to job ads, so 20th century.  Today's path to gainful employment is a whole new deal.  We help illuminate modern job search strategies and build the skill-set that employers are seeking.  Click here for more.

 

Sure, computer programmers need to know how to write code and dentists have to be handy with a drill, but today everyone needs the same soft skills in order to succeed in school, the workplace, and life. What are soft skills, you ask?  They're the traits and abilities we need to play well with others, do our work effectively, and positively shape the way people perceive us.  We can help you be more successful in every area of your life by working with you to build these skills.  Click here for more.

 

It's all about getting into college, right?  Wrong!  Once they move on to college, students have unfamiliar terrain to navigate and a new set of goals to achieve.  College success coaching helps students maximize their college experience and create and capitalize on opportunities that will prepare them for graduate school and/or the 21st century workplace.

Today's journey to college is one heck of a schlep. We guide high school,  transfer, and grad students through every step of the college admissions process.  What distinguishes us is our student-centered approach and commitment to finding the best-fit schools for each individual we serve. 

 

 

In addition to working with individuals, we create and deliver customized programs for public/private/charter schools, non-profit organizations, government agencies, and corporate/business EAP and employee programs. Click on one of the orange buttons to learn more.

 

 

 

 

"Roberta and Joan have provided the single-most critical guidance for our 20-something son as he transitioned from college to his career as a filmmaker. Faced with so many ways into the business, they showed him how to pinpoint the path best suited to his singular talents, ambitions and character. With patience and unwavering - but realistic - support, they have helped him to define his goals and to develop the precise skills he needs to reach them."
