There is a gap between what public schools see as success in making a student into a successful graduate, and what a graduate needs to be successful in life. There is also a gap between what the military sees as a successful transition to the private sector, and what transitioning personnel need to have a successful career and life outside of the military. The gaps identified are not the faults of the school districts or the military. They have specific missions. School Districts have the mission of producing high school graduates and measure their success by standardized testing scores, not the goals and dreams of their graduates. The military has a mission of protecting the American way of life, not the career objectives of transitioning military personnel.
The difference between those who consider themselves successful and those who do not, is simple. Those who know what they want to accomplish, make plans, put those plans into action and refuse to get deterred from reaching those goal achievements. They become successful because they can describe or see their success. Those who do not see themselves as successful, in many cases, do not have the ability to describe what they would consider success.
We are here to provide tools to assist young adults and transitioning military personnel in identifying their passions, defining success, establishing goals and mapping strategies to continuously make their goals into achievements. The tools that GRANTING AVENUES provides are meant to be used as means of constantly evaluating where the student is, what the student believes to be success, and to assist the student to continuously establish goals and create plans to make those goals accomplishments. GRANTING AVENUES has also built a network of professionals, from a wide range of disciplines, who will volunteer to be mentors to those looking to achieve success in their particular industries.
Let’s work together to give our graduating high school students, transitioning military personnel, and those who are just unhappy with the direction their career path is going, the best opportunity to become successful members of the public and private sector work force.
We can help foster a culture of self-motivated, focused, goal-driven Graduates and Veterans who know what they want to do as a career and have a plan to do it. We can change the narrative to one of “a generation of passionate laser- focused leaders who will change the world!!”
