What is Watering Seeds?

The Watering Seeds program is designed to help diverse, untapped, and underestimated graduates build skills to succeed in the professional workplace. 

Watering Seeds helps individuals grow from systemic, historical and first-generation challenges.  

“Success” is financial self-sustainability. Watering Seeds helps individuals to develop useful skills to advance on that path.

Watering Seeds provides coaching and professional development support to these young adults.

Why Watering Seeds?​​

Existing programs, both internal and external to universities, do an excellent job of helping young adults move through college and graduate, but the support those programs provide ends as the students prepare to leave academia and move into the working world.

There is a “post-graduation gap.”

The Watering Seeds program complements existing career services. It provides graduates a foundation built on professional development and one-on-one coaching, helping to build skills in support of their long-term success. 

The Benefits of Watering Seeds

For students, the goal is to transition successfully from school to the professional world, and then advance and succeed.

Skill Building

Feeling supported, equipped and more confident as they make the transition to the business world

For the partner and funding organizations, the goal is to assure a well-prepared and capable cadre of young adults, ready to join the workforce, ensuring they are prepared for the unique demands of the business environment.
