We’re building communities by aligning talent, education, & industry.
Employers need their next great hires. Students need opportunities. As an educator, you have an integral role in connecting them.
BUILD LARGER, MORE DIVERSE TALENT PIPELINES
YouScience helps close the workforce gap by first addressing the exposure gap that reduces interest for in-demand careers. We cut through social noise and biases to create more access and equity – because while there might be a skills gap, there isn’t a talent gap. Your students have the talent and ability to excel in the careers our economy needs; it’s our job to help get them there.
HELP STUDENTS SHOW THE WORLD WHAT MAKES THEM AWESOME
By combining the personal feedback language from our “Describing You” section and the meaningful skill validation from the Precision Exams standards, students can craft a personal narrative that wows potential employers.
SEE THE MAGIC IN ACTION
YouScience is a foundational component of the 9th grade Freshman Seminar Course in Metro Nashville Public Schools, watch the video to see why.

VALIDATE REAL-WORLD SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE
Do you know local employers who want to partner with your school to find talent?
“Pennbridge would place an individual that achieved one of these certificates as significant hiring priority over a similar candidate without this achievement. The early interest and proven desire to learn more about our industry speaks to the long-term commitment of a candidate.” – Thomas W. Lewis, III, Principal, Pennbridge Capital
