World Changers Program
The College Is Not Mandatory
Today’s young adults have endless career opportunities and yet have very limited knowledge as to what is available to them. They also struggle to find careers that are meaningful for them, often spending time and money unnecessarily because they do not understand how to find a career path that matters to them.
The College Is Not Mandatory World Changers Career Program™ is a comprehensive and multi-faceted career identification curriculum for high school students. It makes high school relevant by providing students with the opportunity to explore and gain an understanding of their passions and interests in relation to their future career. It has been designed to equip students with the skills to pursue a career that they are passionate about. With this program, students are able to make better informed decisions about their future and develop the confidence and self-belief to pursue their goals.
World Changers is an innovative education coaching program that encourages students to explore their potential and to make an impact in the world. This program includes an educator guide, lesson plans, and slide decks to introduce the three units which can be used together or independently. It is designed to be teacher-led or used for independent study, so educators can tailor it to fit their needs. With this program, students will be empowered to think critically and take action to make a positive change in their community.
Unit 1: Career Foundations helps students identify and pursue their ideal career path. Through self-reflection exercises and industry research, the lessons in this unit provides a solid foundation of what matters most in the career search process. Students will be introduced to the Career Clusters and Career Pathways frameworks, as well as the Holland Code for personality assessment and encouraged to build an effective roadmap to success.
Unit 2: Career Discovery provides individual career search lessons to help students uncover their ideal career path. Using research and self-reflection, students will create a lifestyle vision and set goals to achieve it. They will learn how to research personal Career Cluster areas, and become aware of the necessary skills, experience, training and education for each. In Career Discovery, students will develop the skills and knowledge necessary to start a pathway to a career they love while still in high school.
Unit 3: Career Planning provides comprehensive guidance for students to develop a successful career path. Each lesson helps students create a personalized plan that identifies the best post-graduation education and training options for their individual career needs needs. Using the 6 main post-high school education and training options available to them, students are encouraged to explore combining them to fit their needs. In Career Planning students will craft a comprehensive career development plan that helps them prepare for success in their chosen field.
IT'S TIME TO BREAK THE MOLD

Meet Stephanie Haynes, PCC, CCSP
Today's teens are stuck in an outdated definition of success. It is no longer beneficial to continue the one-size-fits-all college-for-everyone mantra. Today's teens need to be equipped to break the mold and build career-centered pathways they are excited to pursue, making high school relevant to their futures.
As a former teacher, a parent, and now a professional coach and consultant I understand the pressures you face in the field of education. It's why I started coaching educational leaders like you. I want to empower you to break the mold and equip you to reimagine the definition of success at your school.
