THE GAP APP

“Everyone is a genius in some unique way, but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, then it will live its whole life believing it’s stupid.” Albert Einstein

Did you struggle in the traditional education system? Do you know a child who currently struggles or lacks enthusiasm? Is it possible that this child believes that this struggle is 100% due to them? Could this belief lead them to rebellious behavior, isolation, or mental health issues?

If these questions speak to some pain that you have felt or you know a child who is struggling in the current system, add your email below to stay informed of solutions!

Emergency Alert: u003cstrongu003eu003cemu003eThe U.S. Surgeon General declared an “epidemic of loneliness and isolation.” u003c/emu003eu003c/strongu003e

u003cbru003eu003cstrongu003eThe Missionu003c/strongu003e: We help struggling students recognize their potential, develop key skills, and take advantage of the main opportunities that they have in their current everyday situation. Students take the lead role in developing their u0022life-gameu0022 planning while non-academic key indicators are measured. Deeper connections develop through regular contact with a trusted adult, who uses the same system to teach effectively by modeling.u003cbru003eu003cbru003eu003cstrongu003eThe Visionu003c/strongu003e: We will address the gap that is quickly evolving by leveraging modern technology, world-class training systems, and highly incentivized participants to scale the mission. We will provide systems to improve the disparity between the skills an employer expects their employees to have and the actual skills many upcoming employees possess. The skills include executive function skills, essential soft skills, and technical skills as we provide vocational training opportunities with mentors.u003cbru003eu003cbru003e

u003cstrongu003eCould hearing this from the right person have a strong, positive impact on Johnny’s life?u003c/strongu003e

Johnny, I see that you have been getting in some trouble and your grades are suffering. I do notice that you have a lot of energy, and sitting at a desk most of the day is probably difficult for you. There are many students just like you! I’ll bet that your true potential will emerge once you have an opportunity to learn in a more hands-on environment and burn off some of that energy in a healthy way. u003cstrongu003eCan we make this deal, Johnny?u003c/strongu003e While we try hard to create more opportunities for you to learn in a more hands-on environment, would you try to take advantage of the opportunities that you do have every day to develop critical life skills? Opportunities like improving time management, developing people skills, and strengthening that critical muscle of u0022self-disciplineu0022 (just do it, even when you don’t feel like it) are a few examples. Those u0022musclesu0022 will help you to succeed better as a friend, father, or in any career path that you choose. Last but not least, by choosing to do the harder things now, you are setting yourself up for lifelong happiness, which is 1000 times greater than a quick laugh today. u003cstrongu003eDo we have a deal, Johnny?u003c/strongu003eu003cbru003eu003cbru003eI have had that very conversation with many students and it works! Why does it work? First, it helps Johnny to see the main opportunities that he has every day to become better in ANY career and improve his chance of u003cemu003elong-termu003c/emu003e happiness. Second, when he hears that he’s not alone and the reason is at least partially due to a system that needs improvement, he opens up his ears to listen!
