Employability skills that rank extremely high among employers include communication, work-ethic, self-determination, creativity, and problem solving.
-Kaufman Foundation Research, 2019
As more automation becomes possible employers are putting a higher emphasis on skills that only humans can provide, like creativity and perseverance. Cultivating a culture within schools to foster employability skills, getting students in real-world learning opportunities, and providing new insights and information on how to navigate the future will be essential for the growth and development of a new generation of change.
–ReThink Ed Conference 2019
Companies hire and retain people who provide solutions to their problems. The best job security is to be a problem-solver.
–Caroline Ceniza-Levine, Forbes, 2019
The lack of skills within our current and future workforce is at an epidemic proportion. However, the biggest and most dangerous skills gap today is the students disconnection from the real world.

We Are Changing the Narrative
The vision of EducationALIVE is to revive the heart of the child and create a bond of curiosity between what they know to who they will become. We have strategically created activities to awaken the learner while also developing in the student high-demand employability skills like communication, responsibility, work-ethic, self-determination, creativity, emotional IQ, collaboration, self-awareness and problem-solving techniques.
Students are able to experience life through the lens of the Sherpas, who provide a virtual, in-depth job shadow experience. This up-close view of the experts answers the student's question: "When are we ever going to use this?", bringing purpose and relevance of learning to a transformed classroom. This curriculum takes a different approach, as it is more fluid. This process is critical creating change and transformation. It is process-based rather than product-based.
Our dynamic educational approach engages and inspires students to see a world of opportunity—showing them a tangible future. Changing the narrative. A fresh perspective and a narrowed goal lead to a new culture, where every experience matters. The student recognizes that they have a story—and each chapter helps build the pathway to their newfound career goal.
In addition to our virtual career exploratory curriculum, our Facebook page offers students avenues to connect to the community through projects, events, field trips, job shadow experiences, mentorship opportunities and suggested classes offered in the state of Oklahoma.
