Pathfinders: A Career Discovery Program

Pathfinders is a 3-session, one-on-one mentorship program that lets middle school and high school students take 3 careers or academic subjects on a test-drive. Pathfinders is designed to give students exposure to a diversity of college majors through connecting them with experts who are devoting their careers to those disciplines. Our students walk away from the program with a clearer sense of their career and academic interests, ideas and next steps for further exploration, a 400-word reflection paper on their learnings, as well as a written diagnostic on their passion discovery journey so far from a trained professional.
