BVC CLIENT SPOTLIGHT: LOOPEDUCATION
Getting information about higher education from real post-secondary students can make all the difference in the world, especially when there is a shortage of guidance and career counsellors in schools and academic consulting costs thousands of dollars.
LoopEducation’s founders are post-secondary students who saw a need and faced the same issues when they were leaving high school, so they decided to take matters into their own hands. Together, they founded LoopEducation Inc.
LoopEducation employs post-secondary students as strategists, who are able to leverage their lived experience by supporting students with common backgrounds, career interests, and goals. The company also provides Strategists a way of giving back to the community and acquiring meaningful work experience.
Strategists guide high school students in their path to post-secondary programs through Personalized Action Plans and individual consultation sessions. They provide assistance on a wide range of post-secondary issues including program requirements, financial aid and scholarships, internships and volunteer opportunities, and general career navigation.
LoopEducation uses a community model built on diversity and inclusion, specifically building positive relationships and communities within first generation post-secondary students.
They also aim to bridge the education access gap by providing educational resources, networks, and mentors that understand and work with students.
In support of their community model, LoopEducation is offering 2 free consultations to students during COVID-19 to help provide access to resources during these difficult times.
The BLG Business Venture Clinic has been drafting agreements and provided legal information to help LoopEducation strengthen their business structure and services.
