All Certified Yellow Parachute Coaches guide students to develop Executive Function Skills – the skills that are most essential to independent learning and the choices students will make after high school.

Dr. Dana Beth Ardi, thought leader in talent management, explains the importance of learning how to learn for each individual student:

“We have to start looking at children and helping them to identify their skills and talents, giving them the tools to acquire knowledge because jobs that we may have in twenty-five years may not be the jobs you envisioned in fifty years. So how do you continually become a learner, re-skill and then take responsibility [for ongoing learning]?”
