What is the problem we are solving?
We are solving student unemployment by targeting low-income, underserved, and/or low-resourced students in order to teach them the fundamentals of career development.
How is YCC Inc. different from its competitors?
What's different is the personal brand, story, and credentials of our founder, Natascha Saunders. She is the face of our brand because she knows what it is like to live in what some say is low-income housing growing up in Roxbury and Dorchester, MA. She grew up in a home with a father and brother who were alcoholics and domestic violence existed. She had a brother whose body was pulled out of a river. She had a mom who battled trauma, and she was a kid with a learning disability and went through her own trauma.
What separates Natascha is that she is the Black kid who walked the lives of those she serves. This is what she wants to bring more strategically to the table in her career development work. The basic tools competitors bring to the table are great when it comes to content. After 20 years Natascha knows the career development content. However, the reality is that teaching students from low-resource backgrounds to be competitive in the classroom and the boardroom takes resilience, self-efficacy, code-switching, and social capital. That is the value-add of having Natascha at the table.
