To thrive in our ever-advancing and changing world, today’s students need to find relevance in their education, confidence in their future, and purpose in their life. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.
YouScience® research from the Post Graduation Readiness Report shows:
- A staggering 75% of graduates feel unprepared to make critical decisions about their careers and education after leaving high school.
- More than 80% felt they would be more engaged in learning if they had a better understanding of their aptitudes and how those talents align with possible careers.
- More than 1/3 of students have no defined educational or career path when they graduate, and 41% felt unprepared for these life-altering types of decisions.
The launch of YouScience® Brightpath is a giant leap forward in providing that better future. Ingrained into who we are at YouScience is the belief that every student has a wonderful and powerful genius. Our mission, then, is to unleash the power within all students by helping them find, chart, and make possible their own incredibly bright future.
