Most students take the traditional approach to college. They go because they are told that's what they need to do to be successful. They compete over grades, test scores, community service hours, and extracurricular activities. They do everything to deliver what colleges want. Then they get to college thinking someone will be there to help them figure out what they want. They pick majors they think will make them successful. They go after jobs that will pay off debt. At 28, they look back and wonder why they aren't satisfied with their lives. At Off-Trail On Purpose, we guide students to take a different approach. We begin with the end in mind. We consider information critically. We ask questions. We find our strengths. We discover how we want to contribute to a better world. We change our minds and adjust our plans. We ask for help. We share our dreams. We learn how to explore with purpose. We build confidence. As a result, our clients submit applications to schools that fit their goals, they communicate what they want from their educational investment, they ask for what they need, and they complete college in less time, with less expense, and with higher quality experiences.
