Fostering Career and College Confidence to Youth & Millennials
Paty Villegas Consulting approach is from a holistic and strength based perspective. We focus on students' positive attributes and enhance individual strengths, resourcefulness, and self-determination skills. By educating and empowering students on their natural talents and abilities, we evoke positive educational and vocational outcomes.
Paty Villages Consulting is committed to advancing equity in education.
I created Paty Villegas Consulting as the result of my own quest to live a life with purpose and intention, stemming from my strong desire to pass on information that I wish I knew when I was a young person embarking on my college and career journey.
In 2019, I became an Adjunct Lecturer for the same college I attended: Evergreen Valley Community College. I taught career development and college success courses for the counseling department. At this time, I witnessed two groups of students. Group one was excelling academically, and group two who were just squeaking by. I observed that group two students were from ethnic minority backgrounds, and they often struggled, withdrew, disappeared, or failed. I quickly acknowledged I was looking at a younger version of myself; I used to be a group two student. I made unwise choices, I failed classes, dropped out of college, and was an underachiever.
I realized the achievement gap among minority students remained an enduring issue today, and it takes people who have been through similar struggles and have conquered those challenges, to pave the wave for the next generation. My personal experiences and my professional journey sparked the aspiration to create a business to help the next generation pursue their college and career endeavors.
As a result, I created Paty Villegas Consulting, a career and college coaching firm for youth and millennials from disadvantaged backgrounds. My mission is to educate students on college and career readiness skills, knowledge, and dispositions necessary to successfully apply and prepare for post-secondary education and prepare them for the workforce. To date, over 1,000 students have participated in our program during the last 2 years. What started as a teaching profession evolved into a comprehensive program with a mission, vision, goals, and a curriculum that has helped hundreds of students succeed.
The goal is to transfer all the knowledge and blueprints I have obtained as a student and as a professional to improve college student retention rates and increase post-education completion rates. Through my services, I hope youth and millennials realize they already have what it takes to overcome and transcend challenges in their lives to be successful. I hope to inspire students to pursue their dreams fearlessly.
