Lead2Change is a leading career-readiness organization that equips young people with essential tools to be successful in college, their career and the community. Since its inception in 2011, Lead2Change has empowered more than 400 young people, ages 16 to 24 years old, to be catalysts for change in their communities through career development classes, workshops and internships.
Imagine a generation of youth prepared to enter the workforce — a generation confident, poised and professional — a generation equipped to navigate challenges with grit and dedication to construct a more vibrant and stronger community. Imagine being a part of Dream.Explore.Build. (D.E.B.)
D.E.B. is a career-readiness program designed to engage high school students in cultivating their dreams, exploring their strengths, and building their futures. Through a series of intentionally designed experience, students receive professional development and are exposed to prospective careers through paid internships. From recruitment to completion, the goal of this 11-month experience is to ensure that students exude confidence, express professionalism, and embrace a career-ready mindset.
Our career exploration curriculum includes 300 hours of instruction, reflection, sharing, peer-to-peer feedback, and an exciting internship. The program continues with career assessments, talent and value evaluations, and is followed by career field research. A well-rounded program, D.E.B. also equips students with time management, conflict resolution, and money management workshops. Our goal is for students to thrive as professional leaders in our global workforce and beyond.
