Own The Future offers educational programs for curious, open-minded young people who aren’t sure want to be when they grow up. We teach students how to “try on” different futures for themselves—starting with various careers in the technology industry—and begin to discover a life path they will love. We challenge students to be proactive, creative, and decisive to help them figure out their own future.
We encourage students to try out various careers through realistic projects and challenges, giving them brief but true-to-life experience working in each of a number of professional roles. By experiencing the work from a variety of careers, learning to ask smart questions to professionals in those roles, and immersing themselves in different jobs through the power of imagination, students can try out multiple career experiences first-hand. Then they score their own experiences to help them decide which life paths best fit their interests.
In other words, we aim to teach students how to figure out what they want to be in the future—a skill that we hope will last them a lifetime.
