Helping schools and industry work together
We bring business into the classroom and education into the boardroom. By connecting these twin drivers of our society and helping them work together, we create brighter futures for our youth and stronger communities for all of us.
Partnering with schools and colleges
EXP works on campus with schools throughout Southern California. Our programs enhance career pathways, small learning communities, Linked Learning initiatives and other career-based educational programs. We served over 6,400 students in 11 high schools during the 2017-2018 academic year and look forward to expanding our work into K-8, college and beyond.
Unleashing the power of business to do good
We don’t just help students reach their full potential. We help businesses and industry unlock their potential, too. Their potential to do more for their communities. Their potential to shape and develop their future employees. Their potential to reignite their employees by giving them real opportunities to change a young person’s life.
Over 400 industry volunteers advise schools, mentor students and host interns through EXP. We invite you to join them.
Multiplying every student’s potential
Few 9th graders know what the world offers or what their potential truly is.
Without EXP, the students we serve might never get a chance to explore and experience the opportunities some high schoolers take for granted. Their success is proof that access, guidance and meaningful experience can help any student overcome major challenges and realize their dreams.
