Want to #DisruptEducation?
Want to SOLVE the IMPENDING #UnemploymentCrisis?
JOIN MY START-UP TEAM!
For the past 9 months I have been building an experiment – a global virtual classroom to prove 2 things:
- That it is not only viable to teach students #EmployabilitySkills, they are begging for a new way to learn these skills that fits into their lives and lifestyles.
- That students, young adults and older adults alike are all CRAVING knowledge and guidance for how to build businesses and careers that connect to the opportunities and challenges within their own communities .
Why? Because I have spent my entire career proving that we MUST teach students how to become #Entrepreneurs (Click here to watch my interview on CNN where I talk about the importance of teaching entrepreneurship to students in schools) and how to build meaningful careers that are connected to the needs and trends of today’s #GlobalWorkforce.
Finally, after 15 years of preaching this message, everybody finally gets it.
My work, and the new platform that is being built out of this, is focused on teaching entrepreneurship, career skills and social-emotional strengths to students ages 12+.
I am currently seeking team members interested in joining this incredibly exciting start-up. We currently reach 5500+ students from 80+ countries with a team of 12 mentor teacher experts. These numbers reflect an experiment performed globally with 100% organic word-of-mouth marketing and zero investment dollars.
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR:
Now seeking energetic and innovative additions to the team. Are you interested in changing the future of education and working along side an innovator in education who has dedicated her entire career to disrupting the biggest gap that exists in the educational landscape (The gap between school and work)? If so, that’s me, and I want to hear from you!
1. Marketing & sales experts
2. Tech team members who know LMS platforms, Web design, & app development
3. Expert “mentor teachers” from around the world who already have proven methods and impact in teaching:
… Career skills
… Business skills
… Personal development skills
… Anything else you think is essential for preparing tomorrow’s workforce
WHERE WE ARE TODAY:
These opportunities are pre-funding, so I’m looking for people with a start-up backbone and commitment to bringing a big solution to the impending unemployment crisis by creating an education model that ensures young people have the skills they need BEFORE they become part of the #UnskilledWorkforce statistics. We have already proven that the model is valuable to individuals and organizations who seek to learn and train other students and young adults critical #EmployabilitySkills. Everyone wants to ensure there are innovative and confident members of the workforce ready to tackle the world’s problems – great and small, global and local. If you want that too, we might just want you on our team!
