Edmonton Internet marketing firm, Terra Marketing Group, has become a “friend” of the Flight Plan business-coaching program in order to help 10 high school students break into business.
“We have always believed that part of our mandate is to give back to the community,” a company representative said. “By giving students the tools and skills they need to excel, we are helping build a better future.”
Terra Marketing Group is an Alberta based company that looks at growing trends in the marketplace, examines the current products and marketing and then seeks to dominate that market by creating better products, services and advertising messages.
The Flight Plan program is designed to help teenage students figure out which career path is right for them, and then gives them the skills and tools they need to enter that industry and become successful. The program was started by one of Brian Tracy’s Certified Focal Point businesses coaches. Terra Marketing Group has agreed to sponsor 10 students at Ardrossan High School for the program initially, and may sponsor more in the future. Right now, TMG is just one of many companies that will be helping the entire graduating class of Ardrossan to have access to Flight Plan.
Each sponsored student will get access to the following mentoring and coaching materials.
- An online career planning insights assessment – an invaluable tool that provides potential career paths the individual should consider based on their behavioral style.
- An educational video explaining the assessment and how to apply the reported results in their life.
- Access to the Flight Plan: Graduation & Beyond, a 60-minute, life-changing presentation. Topics include how changing your thinking can change your life, the power of choice, and how to construct written goals effectively and consistently.
- Weekly, on-going, educational, and motivational follow-up support through social media from their certified coach to hold the students accountable on their path to success.
“We believe that programs like this can really make a difference in the lives of Canadian students,” TMG representative said. “We also think it can help the business community itself by providing us with better-prepared job applicants in the near future.”
The company also said their research had shown students enrolled in coaching and mentoring programs were more likely to avoid the pitfalls of high school. They were 46 percent less likely to do drugs, 27 percent less likely to drink, 33 percent less likely to get into fights and 53 percent less likely to skip school, according to a recent study sponsored by Proctor & Gamble.
