Understanding is the first step in empowering those with the most to gain from education beyond degrees. If we didn’t take the time to understand the unique challenges and skills of each population with our community partners, we would be doing substandard work. We wouldn’t be able to achieve our mission without leaning on our partners who serve these groups relentlessly. It’s in fostering deep bonds and gaining an expert perspective on these students that we ensure the ability to match them up with a meaningful certificate opportunity.
It’s through our unshakable commitment to authentic partnerships and deep advocacy for the students that SpurPG gains its unique power to transform the education landscape for the people.
The second step in our process, once we’ve gained an adept perspective on the unique subset of students and their skills, is to match them with meaningful educational opportunities.
Spur will leverage all of their expertise to provide high-value, low-investment opportunities for our students. Through government-funded programs like WIOA, MyCAA, etc., and our relationships with some of the top CE departments across the country, our goal is to provide economic and societal empowerment at little to no cost to students.
We do this work because it’s in our hearts and we see an educational landscape we can’t stand to accept any longer. If we aren’t fully supporting students attempting to transcend this antiquated system, we’re not doing our part to change lives. We understand the physical, emotional, and societal pressures of lifting one self to a higher level of existence, and are committed to easing that burden.
Once our students have completed their educational programs, we leverage individual and group coaching sessions to bridge the gap between education and a meaningful career. The direct need of employable skills are why we see so much power in them to save the American workforce and we guide our students in making that transition.
Our relationship with our community partners in managing the physical and emotional burden of this transition is essential to achievement of our mission. We like to say that the job isn’t complete until our students feel empowered and finished with this process.
