THE YOUSCHOOL USA FOUNDATION

THE STORY: WE HELP DESIGN CLARITY FOR PEOPLE IN TRANSITION

CLARITY FOR STUDENTS We made our way in, we've seen results, we've refined the program, we've been invited back, we've found the best Guide in town, we've tapped into public school grant funding, we’ve set up a foundation with an all-star board, and we're ready to rock. YouSchool’s mission is to unlock the full potential of every student by giving them the tools to plan their most successful lives. We have found that students are asked again and again what they want to do when they grow up, without really knowing how to discover the answer to that question. YouSchool was created to help students gain clarity about who they are, and what they want and need to make their dreams a reality. All students deserve the opportunity to reflect on the trajectory of their lives, and get to personal clarity about what’s possible with a bit of imagination and a whole lot of hard work. 

CLARITY FOR VETERANS Two years ago, we had an invitation to serve Military Special Forces in transition through The Honor Foundation (thehonorfoundation.org). We saw tremendous impact and learned how to contextualize our program to the military community. A year ago, we began working alongside Team Rubicon USA (teamrubiconusa.org). With 40,000 active veteran volunteers, Team Rubicon unites the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams.

IMPACT & OUTCOMES

We know it works. We work with an independent 3rd party to evaluate the impact of our program, with a lens for continuous improvement, and to ensure we align to our program outcomes with the intended outcomes of the educational system. We seek to be partners and be an innovative example for educators. Participants quickly engage and dive into the process. As we partner with organizations, we measure outcomes in three key areas: SELF-AWARENESS + SELF-CONFIDENCE + SELF-DIRECTION

EACH PERSON MATTERS

We run an efficient program: each student has a custom workbook, is guided by an expertly trained Guide in a peer setting in 12 hours, gets to build a network of Advisors, develops a life plan, learns how to tell a compelling life story, and gains the internal/external assets to move forward on a clear path. 

THE QUICKEST WAY TO MAKE NEW FRIENDS IS TO START WITH FREE

When we’ve approached new schools with a free program, they don’t hesitate to bring us in because we’re addressing recognized needs. We’ve learned how to build partnerships that last, and we’ve discovered that school funds are available for programs like ours.
