TUTORING MENTORING COUNSELING
Our mission is to help secondary and post-secondary youth with diverse needs (12-21) adequately prepare for independent living.
Our goal is to help youth with diverse needs develop key academic, financial, entrepreneur, career, life, and social emotional learning skills that will allow them the opportunity to be productive after graduating from high school and college.
Certified^Professionals, (C-PROFESSIONALS) was incorporated in 2016 by founder Cornell M. Barbain Ed.S because he was tired of feeling helpless as more and more youths with diverse needs continued to dropout of school at alarming rates. He reached out to friend and mentor NFL Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk, and as a result they decided to turn his research study (How Does Secondary Transition Programs Impact At-Risk Youth Dropout Rates) into (4) supplemental alternative education programs and support services.
Research shows the most critical need for youth 13-18 years of age is to develop and obtain college and career readiness skills in order to live independently.
As a result, Certified^Professionals, LLC was created to meet this need by providing alternative education programs, tutoring, mentoring, and counseling services.
Our supplemental education programs and support services are designed to partner with school districts, business groups, and community organizations.
We also pride ourselves in working as parental advocates for our clients because we understand that due to COVID-19 and increasing work obligations some guardians and organizations find it challenging to help youths with both guidance and school assignments.
Our team is equipped with state certified teachers and licensed professionals that have the ability to gather and explain information provided by teachers and school administrators in a manner in which parents and guardians can easily understand.
