Motivating students onto positive career paths


 ABOUT SEGUE 

Segue's mission is to empower, inspire, and motivate students to explore, choose, and act on their life's path.

It's well established that mentoring a youth can have a profound positive impact on their life, but few can commit to the time required. That's why Segue was founded.


Segue enables volunteers from the local workforce in all careers to speak in local students' classrooms. They make a huge difference in students' lives, show them a way forward, enjoy a satisfying experience, and do it all within a one-time commitment of an hour-and-a-half.


The Segue curriculum is fresh each day because it is comprised of live career speakers' unique real-world stories of their path to the workplace, and a description of their current work.


When students see a 'possible self' in a speaker, see a career that they want, it's a game changer. Attaining that career becomes their goal. They see the relevance of school, become willing learners, work harder, and graduate high school. Many go on to college. See the University of Michigan research behind Possible Selves.


Students learn key lessons from speakers about the road of life and find good cause for hope about their future. They learn that "more effort now equals more options in their future." They learn about the actual lights at the end of the tunnel, the specific paths to get there, and the speakers' wisdom behind the saying "if only I knew then what I know now."


For the college bound, Segue answers many questions and helps solve the mystery about career options with real world content from those that have been there.


Segue is made of two parts: (1) a "system of respect" in every aspect of the program: respect for the school environment, speakers' time, and teachers' time. And (2), an online self-scheduling system that in two minutes enables career speakers to pick a time and date that fits their calendars.


Students receive the career mentors as living proof that long-term goals are achievable, and that the path to these goals is through additional education or training. Importantly, 86% come to believe that "more effort now equals more options for their future." Of those planning to drop out, 94% report that they are now, due to Segue, more likely to stay in school and graduate.


How can most students choose a fitting career when they know so few options?
