Teens and veterans have been using and prototyping KarmaBoard with increasing levels of satisfaction as individuals for over a year. We will never stop serving them directly, but did you know we are also hard at work developing efficacious group solutions for high schools, teen community centers, and the military?
After our pilots and years of research and designing at Stanford University under some of the best social psychologists and tech innovators in the world, we are stoked to offer a few targeted solutions that data(1) suggests meaningfully impacts life outcomes.
With over a hundred student and veteran interviews conducted, we have identified a need for structured, succinct, and ultimately engaging professional skills training sessions. We have identified topics and developed a forty minute curriculum module for each one. Most of our educator and military customers have opted for a varying combination of these modules to suit their needs.
We are always happy to discuss creating a module that meets a need that you do not see a solution for below. Run all sessions in one day, or space them out as you so desire. Recordings are free of charge and accessible by all students in a password protected video album hosted on KarmaBoard. Contact us for details, and with any questions! Below you will find an example list of modules:
General Career Exploration Skills (What do I want to do with my life?)
Backwards Planning (How do I plan to obtain my life goals?)
Job Search (How do I achieve my goals?)
Interview Preparation (How do I clear the last hurdle?)
Zoom/Video (How do I present myself effectively online?)
Mindfulness (How do I calm and orient my mind?)
Organization (How do I leverage tools and habits to maximize my effectiveness?)
Research has shown that a strong relationship between the variety and strength of an individual's network holds the key to their success.
We put your students, veterans, et al., into groups of twelve on KarmaBoard and pair them with two of our amazing facilitators.
Their group page on KarmaBoard is a safe and secure social space, centered around personal progress and communal support. It allows individuals to share questions, tips, opportunities, and most importantly, support!
We host monthly or bi-monthly zoom group check-ins and send out monthly surveys to see where and how we can best be of help. Our bread and butter is career building, but we pride ourselves on having a robust knowledge base with which to point our mentees towards the best available resources if we can’t answer their questions.
Coming Soon (in pilot phase)
Industry and Career Exploration Sessions
We are designing and testing sessions where we conduct deep-dives into different career paths in an engaging and relevant format with 40 minute introductions to career options that are in-demand (now, and in the future). Healthcare? Trades? Renewable Energy?
We will open your student, veteran, et al.’s eyes to the possibilities and connect them to important resources they can revisit on their own time. We can run these sessions all in one day, or space them out as you so desire. As with all sessions, recording and hosting is free.
Don’t See the Solution to Your Problem?
We want to know what your pain points are so we can take an honest look at whether or not we can meet those needs.
In some cases we know of solutions that you may not know about, and are happy to point you to ‘competitors’ that may solve your problem. After all, it’s good karma. :)
