EXP helps young people gain experience, unlock doors and build the confidence they need to succeed in school, career and life.
Our programs help schools deliver innovative, career-based curriculum that makes classroom learning relevant and exciting. During the 2017-2018 school year, EXP programs served 6,400 high school students at 11 Southern California high schools. For 2018-2019, we will be piloting programs that reach students from kindergarten through college.
Our success depends on our unique ability to bring industry and schools together to solve problems and overcome obstacles that prevent students' access to education, experience and opportunities. More than 400 industry leaders serve as EXP volunteers, mentors and internship hosts.
By helping schools and industry work together, EXP is changing how society prepares students for life and bringing genuine opportunity to every young person we can reach.
