About Navigate

Woman founded and minority owned, Navigate is a dynamic workforce development initiative that offers a menu of program options for professional development, specialized training and inroads to sustainable job placement. Navigate partners with public and private entities to serve a diverse set of talent pools. The groups in which Navigate focuses range from high school students to young adults, from either low- income, high potential communities or displaced situations void of access or proper direction to career opportunities.


The NAVIGATE FOUNDATION is a 501(c)(3) organization that houses the programming. Each Navigate program offers a set of training modules that provide personal and professional grooming as well as industry recognized certification – relative to the focus discipline uniquely defined by each.
