We Help Underserved Youth Be Workforce Ready & Build Brighter Futures
We’re on a mission to help underserved youth unleash their potential and future proof their careers by equipping them with the most in-demand skills that employers want and AI can’t automate: soft skills
Marginalized youth lack opportunities to develop soft skills and its impeding their economic mobility. Knowing how to navigate office politics (for example), network, collaborate, and communicate effectively can make or break a career! In fact:
“Of employers say that “soft skills play a critical role in their hiring decisions while 89% have passed on a hire due to a lack of soft skills.”
~ 2023 LinkedIn Talent Solutions
With your support, we will close this gap and provide underserved youth with tuition free training to create pathways to better jobs and a brighter future.
You can change a life.
Take action now.
“The greatest gift you can give a young person is to help them believe in their own potential.”
Your donation will do just this, while equipping underserved youth with professional, life, and leadership skills that will support their integration and advancement in the workforce. Thank you!
Then Covid happened. Schools went online.
We did too but decided to expand to the corporate sector. We realized that companies were having problems training and retaining their young talent and stepped into help. In fact, now that people were working remotely the soft skills gap was getting wider…
By now we were off and running; delivering programs to Fortune-500 companies and thousands of professionals all over the world. We had also developed an innovative learning program called Success GPS which was having major impact.
Divon Academy turned EdTech with the launch of our first e-courses and programs.
Business Schools began to embrace our programs and integrate Success GPS as a ‘for credit’ career prep. course in their schools.
The Divon Academy Foundation was born with the mission of helping underserved youth access world class career-prep training.
This is where YOU step in…
Let’s level the playing field for underserved youth Let’s unlock potential and transform lives.
