A Change In Education – Learning To Find Your Purpose
How A Gap Year In Education Training Can Build Leaders & Purposeful Jobs

 
How do we know when the status quo is no longer working? What does it take for us to see that the current model needs to be redesigned? For Jay Gosselin it took 12,000 heartbreaking conversations with students to fully understand how badly our model for educational transitions needs to be overhauled.
“Create a life that feels good on the inside, not one that just looks good on the outside.” Jay Gosselin, the founder of MentorU and the Discover Year Program is striving for significance.
Jay uses his own non-traditional career path to demonstrate how action, openness, and authenticity are foundational principles when building a purposeful career and life. Jay has travelled to 51 countries, held 19 different jobs, and lived in 7 Canadian cities. His greatest lessons have come through dozens of job rejections, being cut from competitive sports teams, and an abandoned wedding engagement. The combination of insights Jay has gathered from meeting over 13,000 students, conducting research in psychology and education, and his own experiences, enable him to create meaningful programming for young adults striving to build purposeful lives.
To pursue his passion for helping others reach their potential, Jay returned to school at the age of 30, and is currently completing a Master’s degree in educational counselling in his spare time. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
