Meet our professionals
WHY JOIN OUR NETWORK
When professionals become educators, it can be powerful
With a myriad of career options available, young talent may find it difficult to identify what they want to do in the future. You can help them take that first step towards discovering their path.
By working with industry experts like yourself, we can develop programs that allow students to solve real-life problems within a workplace context. We’re able to encourage students to be innovative, creative, and entrepreneurial, while helping them navigate success and failure in equal measure. Our goal is not to teach students to come up with perfect solutions, but to help them understand and experience trial and error in a safe environment—and in the process, find their purpose.
Help us build their potential. Share your time and knowledge today.
SHARE YOUR KNOWLEDGE IN DIFFERENT WAYS
Co-create learning experiences with us
Through our Virtual and Physical Career Simulation Programs, you can help early talent develop 21st-century skills, such as critical thinking, collaboration, and global awareness, among others, all of which are highly prized by employers today.
You can work with us in various ways. As an Event Speaker, you can introduce young talent to your profession through a talk and visual presentation during our live virtual career events. As an Industry Coach, you can co-create modular curriculums based on your expertise and conduct a live interactive learning experience for students as they solve a business problem. And if you’re not comfortable speaking to an audience, you can choose to solely be a Curriculum Designer and develop industry modules with us.
Co-creating a curriculum with us will initially take 5 to 10 hours and your teaching frequency will run from 3 to 25 hours or more per quarter, depending on your level of commitment.
If you choose to develop and execute a curriculum as an Industry Coach, you can teach and get paid. If money is not a concern, you can donate it to OWN Academy’s scholarship fund to support underserved students.
