Something for Everyone

The Compelling Why programming works to increase the number of traditionally under-served students enrolled in academic and life skill enrichment programs in their schools and communities.

Success Sessions

Business and community leaders serve as catalysts and role models who drive action during 1/2-day moderated discussions primarily with African American and Hispanic middle and high school “students of promise.” Immediately following these Success Sessions (seminars), students attend an “Opportunity Fair” where they interface directly with representatives from school- and community-based organizations.

Leadership Series

In addition to the 1/2-day Success Sessions, select schools are offered optional Leadership Sessions whereby industry volunteers introduce and lead discussions on the leadership attributes of integrity, commitment, emotional intelligence and collaboration. The Compelling Why believes that a well-rounded education that prepares youth for career success includes these workforce survival skills that are not emphasized in core academic curricula or tested on standardized tests.

Video Library

The CW success story library consists of filmed and edited seminar content so the reach of our stellar group of professionals and community leaders can be extended to students who are unable to attend. It will also serve as content that CW students can refer to in the future, and educators, youth service providers, and community groups can incorporate into their existing programs.
