connects young adults to resources for working toward a project or career

Catrin Z., Icencia N., Steph W., Kristel B., Andrea L.

On our website, Achieve It, one can look into different projects and careers they want to pursue. Some of the projects include how to publish a book and how to start a business. Among the list of careers you can find out about on our website, you can find out how to work toward a career that you are interested in. We want to make resources more available, clear, and concise so that you have more time to develop your ideas and share your unique perspective with the world.

Every person, no matter their age, should have the self-confidence and resources to pursue a project that they are passionate about. Every unique perspective is valuable, and the more perspectives that get channeled into action the better this world will become. The problem is that it may be discouraging to a young innovator with big ambitions. In addition, we’ve come to a point in history when we have access to too many resources. It is daunting to see thousands of web results and not know where to start.

Our solution is to make a resource geared towards young adults and their big dreams to show them that their goals are indeed achievable and how they can go about accomplishing them. Achieve It clearly and concisely lays out the process and provides additional resources for a number of complex projects and careers to work toward.

A large part of our website is research, and it was hard to focus on our research and functionality of our website simultaneously and not forget about the importance of each of them.
