Ty Adams: Wayfinding Academy

Ty Adams is the Marketing and Communications Manager at Wayfinding Academy.  The traditional college promise made to previous generations is dramatically different for young people now, and there’s a large segment of people who are falling through the cracks, or ending up burdened with mountains of debt and feelings of shame for being “drop outs”. Our culture of higher education is backwards. First you pick a 4-year college, then you pick a major from a list, then you figure out what you’re going to do, and then you try it out. The Wayfinding Academy is working to turn that around by offering a new model of higher education.
