Impact Story: Marcus
In high school, Marcus wanted to be a football player. That is until he joined our Passion for Life program. Now Marcus is a senior in university with ambitions of becoming a U.S. Senator!
“I liked being in Passion for Life because it gave me an opportunity to be seen and interact with professionals and to be heard,” said Marcus.
By completing Passion for Life’s 4-I career immersion process, Marcus was able to:
- Identify his career passions and discover he had a passion for service and wanted to create policies that could help underserved communities thrive.
- Investigate his career selection via our career lab activity where we set up a mock political campaign and Marcus served as a political consultant and prepped his student candidate for debate.
- Immerse in transformative career experiences by first shadowing a political reporter with the AJC and then being “Mayor of the Week” for the City of South Fulton shadowing Mayor Edwards.
- Implement his passion-oriented career plan that he developed with our Passion for Life career coaches.
