Take Flight started based off of our desire to find creative ways of delivering financial resources to people who need it the most. From imagining a online virtual hub to join in regardless of where you are located, my number one desire was to meet you where you are on your wealth and wellness journey.
We created Take Flight because of our LOVE of helping families and youth move from financially existing to financially thriving. We are here to ease the anxiety you experience when you feel financially stuck and to work closely with you to achieve the financial lifestyle that makes you feel confident and secure. With Take Flight, you no longer have to suffer in silence or feel as though you don’t deserve hands-on help with your finances.
These activities expand on students’ mathematical learning skills in ways that differ from the methods used during the school day. They enhance a student’s education by bringing new concepts to light or by using old concepts in new, fun, interactive, and real-life ways. Programs to assist individuals with managing their money and budgeting can be a daunting task, as well as financial planning. Keeping track of everything can be tough, but we will help develop the skills needed to become financially successful.
Financial wellness helps in so many other areas of your life. When your finances are in order, you feel a boost in your self-confidence and your relationships blossom. Financial wellness also allows you to focus on other important areas of your life, like family, instead of worrying about financial challenges.
Our time together will be focused on meeting you where you are on this finance journey, following you on the journey, and observing closely, as you remain committed to long-term and sustainable growth individually or with your family. Not only will we deal with your financial components, we’ll also dive into emotional economics by identifying your back-story and thoughts around money.
I’m here to help you every step of the way—without the judgment—just honesty, care, understanding, and advice that is focused on the facts of your financial situation.
SO, TELL US… WHICH SESSION IS FOR YOU?
The goal of our mentoring program is to offer an after school program that increases the probability of future success for at-risk students by providing them the support necessary to improve written and verbal communication skills and assist them in planning and preparing for a successful post secondary education and future career. Studies have shown that students with poor written and verbal communication skills are more likely to be disruptive in the classroom, truant from school, and at risk of dropping out of high school. By providing the appropriate guidance and support for our students, we will help them avoid these types of negative outcomes and instead empower them to become role models and achievers.
- Young adults who face an opportunity gap but have a mentor are 55% more likely to be enrolled in college than those who did not have a mentor. (The Mentoring Effect, 2014)
- A study showed that the strongest benefit from mentoring, and most consistent across risk groups, was a reduction in depressive symptoms — particularly noteworthy given that almost one in four youth reported worrisome levels of these symptoms at baseline. (The Role of Risk, 2013)
- Mentoring promotes positive social relationships. Mentored youth tend to trust their parents more and communicate better with them. (The Role of Risk, 2013)
