Define what success means to you. We present the challenges, and you come up with the answers. Our team is here to support you as you learn and practice new skills

Learn about the world through active career discovery. While not everyone will be interested in everything, everyone will find something they are interested in.

What You Can Expect

  • Learning that draws from your personal interests

    Whether it's videogames, music, or specific brands, we look behind the curtain to explore what makes them go viral

  • Insight into the career pathways available to you

    How are you supposed to know what you want to be when you grow up if you don't try it first? We make that easy

  • Challenges that make you think creatively

    There isn't always just one answer. Come up with a solution that makes sense to you as you navigate each interactive activity
