Superfood Academy

Center for Entrepreneurial Exploration

The Agency for Life Transformations (ALT) has devised an innovation that combines Discovery and 21st Century Competencies with a model for work-based, experiential learning (Enterprise Learning Labs) to offer consumers a customized pre-employment training approach which leads directly to entrepreneurial or wage employment outcomes.

We begin our exploration of customized employment with a thorough process of self-discovery which reveals the individual’s skills, strengths, aptitudes and interests that inform the Blueprint for Employment. This learning is delivered in a dynamic, real-world “classroom” made up of a micro-enterprise project team of community mentors, business experts, specialists and consumers.
