Built for students
Who's it for? Navcap is for graduate students seeking a constellation of professional and personal career supports within and outside of their university walls.
We serve entry and mid-level Black and LatinX individuals preparing for a career launch or a career pivot.
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 career accelerating communities, mentorship, network-building, and leadership development.
