They offer students opportunities to apply their studies and acquire knowledge through experience.
Upon completing the program, students have both the knowledge and expertise to create value. Training to become successful leaders who exhibit determination and tenacity, pursuing their passions and persevering with strength of character, students learn the necessary resolve to flourish in the global economy.

A Pathway to Success
Overwhelmed and with little to no career direction, today’s young students are left to flounder in low-wage jobs or shuffle through college without a plan. Named for the Swedish sport of way-finding in the wilderness with only basic tools, Orienteering changes students’ perspective of their future and provides them a method to plan for career success.
During this three day workshop, students complete carefully selected assessments to pinpoint your strengths, interests, and personality traits. The program then expands on these assessments with a rich introspective curriculum. Our staff coaches students through a step-by-step process of determining a plan, setting goals, and applying business practices to those goals. Students who participate in Orienteering have the opportunity to gain knowledge about potential careers by networking with experienced professionals in a variety of industries.
