URA Students Power On

Our Experience

Working in the education field for the past eight years has taught us a great deal about empowering youth and adults to achieve success. We’ve worked in both grassroots as well as top-down initiatives, which helped us see the full picture for implementing various initiatives while inspiring buy-in from even the most resistant stakeholders.

The biggest challenge we faced working with schools as an outside organization was our limited relationships with staff and students. Quite often our presentations would evoke great skill building and collaboration, but lose potency after we left.

Therefore, in the spirit of sustainable capacity building, we now share our strategies and tools with leaders like you who have your boots on the ground every day, to help build the relationships that drive long-term motivation. When you are empowered as a leader, your staff and organization are better able succeed at even higher levels.


Business Applications

The fact is that a majority of workforce employees were students at some point. Students who received various degrees of skill building opportunities, social emotional development, and intellectual growth. Therefore, we combine educational, business, and leadership research to create dynamic training experiences that empower your team to actualize their potential.

By practicing the AWESOME Principles within our business, we have seen a significant increase in our revenue, employee retention, customer satisfaction, and donor relations, among other benefits.

Let us train you to do the same.
