EDUCATION

SERVICE LEARNING - Service-Learning engages students in the community to apply learning while also learning more about societal issues. We have a variety of resources, training models, and programs that we can help implement in schools to ensure that students are learning skills that will help them inside and outside of the classroom.

STUDENT RETENTION RESEARCH AND STRATEGIES - When education institutions are engaged in the community magic simply happens. Engaged institutions can easily create service-learning and experiential learning opportunities, have internships program, effective after-school programs, and much more. Work with us to learn about what engagement looks like to you.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CONSULTING AND COACHING

The definitions of coaching and consulting often get blended, but coaching is generally defined as helping others build expertise while consulting is lending one's expertise. At Next Level Consulting we believe coaching and consulting are both essential when working with clients - also known as Adaptive Consulting (lending expertise while also assisting an organization, and its board/staff, increase its ability to successfully function independently in the future).
