EdYOUcation is a newly formed San Antonio, Texas-based organization that seeks to connect high school students with organized, short-term professional and business “shadowing” opportunities. This is in order to facilitate their understanding of a field of work prior to making decisions to invest their limited resources in a particular college or other post-high-school education. The organization plans to work with local high school counseling offices and local businesses to create a program that can be used to match interested students with such opportunities.
Mission statement of the organization:
“Our mission is to bridge the divide between students and the professional world. We believe that students should be allowed to explore their interests without being limited due to lack of opportunity or resources. Our organization intends to create a system that lowers the cost and effort that is associated with pursuing those curiosities in specific area of work.”
