Our Mission

The mission of Live It K-12 is to enhance college and career ready soft-skills and to maximize the impact of the students' network of support. Live it aligns the interests of key stakeholders and facilitates the act of reflecting, capturing, and sharing critical 21st century skill stories. This reflection process and feedback through Natural Language Processing and enlightening data helps the student understand what matters to them, what skills they possess and their unique pathway forward for better college and workforce choices. With the support of their success network and innovative supporting tools, the student can confidently enter the next phase of their lives.

Company Background

Live It was initially developed utilizing research out of Penn State's College of Health and Human Development. Our objective is to translate cutting-edge research into practice and achieve the goal of improving the student experience for better life outcomes. In 2016, after speaking with over 2000 students, 50 faculty and administrators and 40 major employers, Live It began extensive testing in over 20 classes and programs. Working with innovative administrators and instructors in Business, Engineering, Health and Human Development, Arts and Architecture and the Honors College, we've found that Live It's unique process of replicating "real-world" success networks (Student- Mentors-Outcomes) could be applied in a variety of settings with success. In 2017, Live It launched Live It K-12 to help students understand their own unique skills and gain confidence as they make decisions on the next phase of their lives.
