Our mission is to guide underrepresented young adults from the Madison community to achieve their financial, educational and career goals through mentoring, networking and professional development.
What We Do
conNEXTions guides underrepresented young adults between the ages of 18 to 29 to achieve their goals by increasing their financial knowledge, building their social capital and connecting them with the community. We provide mentoring opportunities with professionals that have expertise in the young adults’ career interests. We also provide networking opportunities by teaching young adults how to network and creating events for them to practice their skills. Finally, we offer free workshops on personal and professional development such as financial literacy, self branding/confidence building, interviewing and resume writing so that young adults can get out into the real world on their own and achieve their goals.
Other services we provide:
We provide transportation and free one-on-one financial coaching to help eliminate financial barriers. We also help young adults create an individualize career plan to help them achieve their dreams. Finally, we partner with companies throughout the Madison area to provide career tours so that young adults can connect with employers and learn about different opportunities throughout the city.
