Insala-Designed Interactive Career Exploration Website Expects to Reach Two Million Students
Funded by the Deloitte Foundation, a not-for-profit arm of Deloitte LLP, and Insala, LIFE, Inc. is designed for use in youth organizations, middle schools and high schools. It incorporates student journals, career guides and teachers' guides, and volumes of targeted, contextual content. Complemented by an interactive website, LIFE, Inc. takes students through exercises and games to learn more about themselves and how their likes and dislikes can be parlayed into future career options. Additional content and features rounding out the new site include mentoring, Virtual Role Models, financial management, and the ability to have students' questions answered via e-mail. The Deloitte Foundation expects to reach more than two million students within the next few years.
"Unlike skills mapping exercises that just tell students what they should do or how to build a resume, LIFE, Inc. is wholly unique in its interactive program, bringing in adult, psychologically-based career development concepts and putting them into a context in which younger people can begin to think more holistically, and ultimately more healthily about careers," says Phillip Roark, Insala President and CEO. "The careers of today's youth will be full of changes and opportunities unimaginable to us today because they do not yet exist. LIFE, Inc. is designed to help the next generation be prepared in ways that were just not possible for earlier generations."
Insala adapted Ms. Godfrey's manuscript, taking the intellectual concepts of commonly understood best practices in holistic career development, and turned them into an interactive, self-paced individual or teacher-driven online learning experience.
"Insala's creative design and consultative approach successfully incorporated the next generation research of Deloitte," says author Neale S. Godfrey. "The result of this joint venture is a fun and engaging website that helps young people think about their future career options with games and interactive exercises and with this online presence brings these resources to a wider youth audience."
The Deloitte Foundation sponsorship of the LIFE, Inc. education program resulted from its findings during extensive research on generational differences in the workplace conducted by W. Stanton Smith, National Director, Next Generation Initiatives at Deloitte & Touche. "The goal of LIFE, Inc. is to get kids excited about future careers tracks in pre-teen years, when they are more likely to consider various alternatives, but before they hit mid-teen years when they tend to rule out careers options entirely," says Smith. "Capturing the attention and interest during formative years is intended to create new pools of skilled and invested talent for future workforce needs."
