STS Elite is designed to develop, prepare, and empower college students to be competitive and successful in the workforce. Our students, affectionately known as Professionals in the Making (PIMs), acquire skills and experiences that will help them bridge the gap between college and career. We work diligently to provide Elite students with professional development and career readiness opportunities, such as internships and job shadowing, to further advance and supplement their studies, and prepare them for the road ahead. In this program, peer coaching is utilized to positively influence and challenge our students. Coaches are local, young professionals that regularly give of their time and expertise in service to our students. In the college setting, we continue to see the effectiveness of our coaches reaching back to our Elite students, and sharing guidance and warnings that help to lighten their paths. Program participants must attend a 4-year college or university, and maintain at minimum of 2.8 GPA.
Elite members must have a commitment to excellence and demonstrated leadership experience. They are required to submit a personal statement that we use as a guide to tailor their program plan. Through the program, our PIMs focus on acquiring & developing skill sets that will allow them to thrive throughout their professional career. Members receive year-round professional and personal coaching from young professionals, and gain access to members-only scholarship opportunities.
