student testimonials

“Highly recommend.”

Real World Ready was an extremely beneficial program to complete. Entering the work force and leaving the safety of a college campus can be intimidating, but the interface of Real World Ready was simple and easy to follow so I felt much more confident in my ability to adjust to the challenges ahead. I’d highly recommend this program to recent college graduates.

“Grateful I did this before transitioning to full-time adult.”

Real World Ready helped me come to understand some very important topics about life after college. I am grateful I did this before transitioning to full-time adult, and I find myself often explaining the topics covered in Real World Ready to friends that did not take the course. I highly recommend this course!

our mission

We believe that educating the leaders, founders, movers, and shakers of tomorrow includes preparing them for tomorrow. That means leveling the playing field by giving every student the practical knowledge and support structure needed to thrive after graduation.

 

Something big is missing from our educational system. After engaging with students, parents, employers, and university stakeholders, we’ve confirmed this knowledge gap exists, and that to close it, schools must champion this issue. Schools have a critical role to play here, and we’re thrilled to see innovative institutions embracing this movement.
