What is the problem we are solving?
We are solving youth unemployment by targeting low-income, underserved, and/or low-resourced students to teach the fundamentals of career development in how to obtain gainful employment.
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 personally knows what it is like to live in what some say is low-income housing. She grew up in a home with a father and brother who were alcoholics and where 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.
What separates Natascha is being a Black kid who has walked the lives of those she serves. This is what she wants to bring more forcefully to the table in her career development work. The basic tools our competitors bring to the table are great when it comes to content, we all know the content, but the reality is teaching kids students from unique backgrounds takes resilience, self-efficacy, and code-switching and that is what Natascha offers in her workshops.
