Who We Serve

Navcap serves  Individuals as well as colleges/universities providing robust career readiness supports.

 

 We provide  solutions for Black and LatinX grad students to help them navigate grad school and  prepare them for  post degree success, be it a career launch or a career pivot.

 We provide solutions for colleges and universities who prioritize DEI in their programming, strategic planning, and funding to ensure professional success for Black, LatinX, and other historically underserved students.

Innovations in career guidance in higher education  have shifted from consulting towards  building networking communities, ecosystems, and social mobility (Dey & Cruzvergara, 2019). However, colleges and universities buy and large, do not have a robust model to support this change. We fill this gap.

 

Our Promise & Value: To empower  Black and LatinX students in pursuit of the career they envision and the quality of life they seek.

 

Our process: We deliver on our promise through  training & coaching, mentorship, community-building, and by providing resources.
