First, every staff member in your program will get trained on the Career Coach Program by the person who invented it – Ashley Pereira. Ashley will equip you with everything you need to implement her proven, research-based career readiness system.

Once fully trained, your program staff guide as many students as you desire through the Career Coach Program, a ten-week hybrid program designed to help each unique individual take the critically important first steps in career exploration. Each student enrolled meets once per week for 30 minutes with their Career Coach (you!). Here is how each meet runs:

  1. Meet begins with a ‘check-in chat’ to build relationships.
  2. Student and Career Coach work together on academic and career goal setting using our fully scripted, step by step proprietary career coaching system.
  3. Career Coach guides student through the mentoring mini lesson of the week (examples include setting a vision, STEM career scavenger hunt, motivational interviewing, job shadows, etc.).
  4. Student and Career Coach work together to help each students achieve their dreams and complete a Personal Passion Project by the end of the 10-week program.

To implement the program, your entire program staff get unlimited access to Career In STEM®’s massive library of engaging STEM career readiness resources, the proprietary Question. Care.™  Career Coaching System created by Ashley Pereira, and a game-based incentive system to motivate students and develop critical employability skills.


“Ashley, a certified science teacher, has done a remarkable job building for GEAR UP East Hartford a comprehensive 10-week career and STEM exploration after-school program that our students have thoroughly enjoyed. Her weekly lessons, together with my follow-up coaching sessions, have inspired personal passion projects that have allowed our students to begin exploring and imaging a range of STEM career possibilities. And Ashley and I have the honor of showcasing this work at NCCEP’s annual conference this year!”

“I wanted to say thank you for the kind words and for the incredible opportunity. I learned a lot from it; most importantly, what it is that I want to do in the future, as I discovered that not only do I want to study to become a physicist or research scientist, but I also want to advocate for causes that I believe in and communicate information to people about how, together, we can solve these problems and make the world a better place. I greatly enjoyed all the activities and projects, and the way you presented the day’s topic and encouraged participation from students made them something I looked forward to every day. Again, thank you so much ma’am and I hope you have a great summer!”
