With the urging of Dr. Erin Kimura-Walsh, Director of the First-Generation Student Program, Sean started developing the framework for this social enterprise. In 2018, Launch Your Career and Empowered Students were born to scale impact nationwide.
During Spring and Fall of 2019 Sean was invited to speak at conferences and provide keynotes to share about our methods, frameworks, programs, partnerships and success stories. Then, in Summer, we received encouragement and funding from Santa Clara University to accelerate our goal of impacting 1 million students by 2025.
This goal will be achieved by partnering with higher education and career development programs. We are excited about the partnerships we've already formed and look forward to more each year. We are proud to have partnerships with 2-year and 4-year colleges, public and private universities, non-profit organizations, and government agencies. And we are especially proud to serve students of all majors & programs of study, and ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds, as well as students pursuing all kinds of industries and role types.
