Student Success & Career Coaching

Let us help you build your flight plan


We’re thrilled to offer Student Success & Career Coaching, designed to support you on your journey to success. This new program provides personalized, one-on-one support to help you identify and achieve your goals.

Unlike therapy, which focuses on the past and confronting trauma, or consulting, which offers step-by-step guidance, our coaching program focuses on the present and future.

Our coaches are here to help guide you on:

  • Navigating the challenges and uncertainties of school life
  • Overcoming obstacles
  • Identifying clear and achievable goals
  • Establishing a strategic plan
  • Helping you to create your own actionable steps and accountability
  • Exploring career preferences and opportunities through self-discovery

Our dedicated coaches, Isabel, JD, and Estefanía bring their expertise, dedication to self-care and growth, and a genuine passion for breaking barriers in STEAM education. Focusing on removing obstacles for underserved youth, they use their emotional intelligence training to inspire transformation and activate potential in individuals from diverse backgrounds.

Through partnerships with organizations like Boeing, Alaska Airlines, and United Airlines, we provide access to scholarships and wellness programs as part of our commitment to sharing knowledge and resources to meet the needs of our community.

Interested in the next steps?


We have 10 spots available for one-on-one sessions with our English-speaking coaches, and 8 spots with our Spanish-speaking coach.

Sessions are weekly for 45 minutes to one hour over 6 weeks. Spots are filled on a first-come, first-served basis, so don’t wait! Secure your spot now and join our waitlist if your preferred coach is unavailable.
