What if I told you that we want to invest in your future? We want you to succeed, to go to the world and create amazing things while pursuing a college diploma. Our mission is to make your dream of going to college real and more affordable.
After extensive research, we realize that the most crucial years for college success are the two first years of college. As a matter of fact, during those years many students drop out because of lack of financial funds or academic incompatibility.
Our social venture aims to support students by offering educational options. We believe by bringing together universities and companies, we can deliver high-value education with guaranteed job placement.
As a social entrepreneurship based in Brooklyn, our goal is to help our community to move forward. Our program will focus on ambitious high school graduates pursuing affordable, higher education. Meanwhile, we will create synergy by partnering with the booming tech startup scene in Downtown Brooklyn and NYC enterprises. We will match the best talent coming from our program with amazing internship opportunities within local zip codes.
Our education model will be a combination of openware classes supported by outstanding instructors from universities. The classes will be counted as college credits and will allow the student to transfer to partner universities after completion of the 3 year program.
Students apply to our program through degrees in engineering, business or technology. A percentage of spots will be held for students from underprivileged backgrounds. Our role would be to bridge the gap between companies and universities and provide support to the student to ensure retention.
Phase One: 2 Year General Ed Bootcamp
During this time students out of high school will participate in a two-year intensive bootcamp that covers all pre-requirements such as English, math and general courses. Students that place low on placement exams are still in a 2 year program with more time commitment.
Phase Two: 1 Year Internship
Students pick four job positions and spend 3 months with each company in the field. They get the opportunity to experience the day to day, develop their network, as well as learning about different industries.
Phase Three: 2 Year Intensive
The student then picks a career opportunity they would like to pursue and enters an intensive university curriculum that gears them to achieve it. The partner university will offer a career track and establish benchmarks set by the company. As long as benchmarks met, the student is guaranteed a job with the company coming out of the program. This curriculum is a collaboration between a university & the company and grants them a bachelors degree in the field.
