Learn How to Figure Out What You Want to Be

Everyone deserves a career they love. But many of us never learn the art of finding one. We aim to solve that.

We teach high school students a specific process for preparing for their own future, which we call "career prototyping." Career prototyping relies heavily on project-based learning and blends entrepreneurial thinking with the principles of life design popularized by Stanford University d.school professors Bill Burnett and Dave Evans. Once you've learned the process, you can use it to "try on" any career that piques your curiosity.

We empower students with entrepreneurial thinking and career prototyping skills to help them feel less anxious more confident about the future. We teach frameworks that guide them to try out real projects in different careers, imagine themselves in different life paths, evaluate their own interests, and act proactively to pursue what they enjoy most.


Here's How It Works

Lighthouse takes a project-based learning approach to teach you how to imagine yourself in a variety of career paths. You will do real projects from each role and learn how to approach mentors and learn from their stories.


Gain real-life experience through work projects from different jobs and learn what professionals in those roles actually do. We have designed authentic work experiences to give you quick peek into the daily life of various roles, and help you decide which career paths might be worth exploring further.


Hear "How I Got Here" talks from business leaders, technologists, investors, marketing managers, product managers, software engineers, and other operators and visionaries who enjoy meeting young people. Ask your questions in rapid-fire coaching sessions, watch them speak online, or learn to reach out to them on your own.


You might not discover your dream career in our courses, but you will finish with skills that can help you discover your own passion. Use your new experiences to make smart choices about what to study and which extracurriculars to pursue. Score your experiences in various jobs and find the roles that fit your unique interests.

You Deserve a Future You Will Love

Your future is up to you, but that doesn't mean you have to make big decisions all by yourself. Our courses help you develop a framework for thinking about the future, emphasizing some specific key skills:


We coach students on how to be proactive about the future: finding mentors to contact, look up their contact info, composing professional emails to get replies, and following up with purposeful thank-you's. Learn what to do if you don't hear back and how to reply when you do.


It's good to have a goal. It's also good to be open-minded and change your goal when you need to. Most people take winding, not linear, career paths. We coach students to be decisive about their future and to act on their choices, but to change their plans freely when it makes sense.


For some, charting the future seems simple. But for others, it requires a lot more thought and some seriously creative thinking. Learn how successful adults in different careers have navigated their life decisions and develop some skills to help you navigate yours.


Learn to Enjoy Your Journey

We can't predict your future. It's impossible to know where you will be in a decade or two. But we can give you some tools to figure out what you would enjoy and help you get ready for the great and wonderful unknown.

Your future is bright, and we would like to join you in your journey. Please join us for one of our programs! We hope to meet you soon.
