Through our proven teaching process, Yellow Parachute Coaches guide students to develop the skills that are most essential to independent learning and the choices they will make after high school.

Dr. Dana Beth Ardi, thought leader and expert in the fields of talent management, organizational design, assessment, leadership, coaching, and recruiting, explains the importance of learning how to learn.

“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]?”
