PROGRAMS
Signature Programs
Lead2Change offers two programs that are designed to engage young people in leadership opportunities. Young people who experience our programming enter the post-secondary world confident and clear about their career interests and how they see themselves in the world.
Career Readiness
Dream.Explore.Build.

Dream.Explore.Build.(D.E.B.) partners with young people to “Live their life by design and not by default.” This is accomplished by a personal commitment to complete 150 hours of training using research-based curriculum and interactive workshops. Upon successful completion, Dream Builders earn a paid six-week internship directly aligned with their career interest. Additionally, every Dream Builder navigating through the program is supported by a career advancement coach. Through D.E.B., Dream Builders explore their dreams, build on their strengths, and help design their future.

Dream
[dreem] – noun: an aspiration; goal; aim
Dream. is where it all starts!

As the first-tier of the program, Dream begins with a young person whose willingness and passion to build his or her dream is awakened and clear.

Explore
[ik-‘splohr] – transitive verb: to traverse or range over for the purpose of discovery.

Exploration is a life-long process, yet DREAM.EXPLORE.BUILD. supports students in exploring their values, addressing and overcoming their weaknesses and enhancing their inherent skillsets.

Build
[bild] = transitive verb: to establish, increase, or strengthen

Building is the application and culmination of the program basics. You’ve dreamed, explored, and now it’s time to build. Shall we begin?

 

Our career clusters are a fun (and paid) simulation of careers you aspire to pursue. They are also informative and hands-on! The six weeks will fly by so bring your A-game; these internships may turn into job offers!
