SOULFULL LIFE UNIVERSITY is an education pathway that integrates SOUL into traditional learning, supporting youth with life and leadership coaching, while providing just-in-time work readiness training, financial literacy education, and career advisory.
Our vision is to see the next generation that breaks away from the preconceived notions of success and limitations to live up to their greatest potential, reimagines what is possible for themselves, their community, and the greater humanity.
We are a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit based in Washington, DC, with a for-profit arm, operating under the auspices of NextGen Coaching Institute (NGCI), a consultancy specializing in executive coaching and training, in existence since September 2019. Our model allows us to exercise agility in partnering with public agencies and non-government institutions committed to youth advancement, to deliver a wide range of tailor-made experiential programming, both in person and virtually.
Why Should We Care: The Education Crisis
As the world progresses, the skills required to succeed in the workforce change. Unfortunately, our education system has not kept up. Large dropout rates and rising student debt are just two indicators of the underlying problem. Just 27% of college graduates get a job in a field related to their major (Washington Post, 2013), which raises the question about what kind of guidance they are receiving prior to investing significant time and resources into college education? That being said, 74% of U.S. teens find their financial literacy to be lacking (Greenlight Study, 2021). That means that they felt they did not have the background to do basic things like build a budget, saving, or building good credit. As the workforce is rapidly adapting to the Information Age, classrooms are still following the standard practices of the Industrial Age.
We need to work together to make sure that our young people are prepared for the world ahead. Join forces in helping us to co-create a future we can all be proud of.
Not Another “Band-Aid” Solution: Our Value Differentiators
What Can We Do About It… Together
Our intervention design typically includes a combination of interactive learning experiences, such as mini-lectures, case studies, hot seat coaching, as well as other developmental work done through peer coaching, one-on-one executive coaching and consultative teaching.
Our team of certified executive coaches brings unmatched expertise in areas particularly relevant to young adults that are learning to navigate life, career and financial choices.
We begin with the end user in mind, the youth and young adults whom we serve, to develop customized, wholistic trainings that fit their specific professional and personal objectives.
We partner with organizations to develop tailor-made solutions that build internal capacity, expand reach and institutionalize knowledge within the working team.
Coaching is so important to students because at the high school level you do not quite know what you want to do… Through coaching and exploration of various opportunities, I was finally able to find my way to my passion in early childhood education.“
