BeyondAdmissionsTM is committed to filling the gap in student support services left by colleges and universities. Their team helps students navigate college using evidence-based practices to build healthy coping skills; promote educational engagement; and communicate effectively to create positive personal and academic relationships. This approach builds confidence and self-reliance to excel in college, identify research and internship opportunities, and build a bridge to life post-graduation. The Career Launch Program provides a comprehensive review of the many skills that recent—and not so recent—graduates developed throughout their academic and professional careers in order to best present themselves on the job market. Clients are coached through the job search process in resume building, applications, interviewing, networking, and coping with all the stressors associated with this exciting transition! BeyondAdmissionsTM employs principles of social entrepreneurship by utilizing a portion of revenues to provide free in-kind services for low-income and underserved populations. They incorporate principles of civic engagement to build diverse and inclusive community partnerships in order to empower families and community members to best prepare their youth for college success.
