‘Life Launch’ Four-Day Outdoor Course Aims to Inspire Recent College Grads; Set for July 19-22 at North Cascades Institute

Western Washington University Extended Education’s Life Launch, a new four-day professional-development course focused on helping recent college graduates to discover “what’s next,” is set for July 19-22 at the North Cascades Institute near Diablo.

Led by youth speaker and student-success expert Marli Williams, the program is designed to help young people in their 20s make intentional, meaningful choices as they navigate their lives after graduation. Over the four days, graduates will work to identify their passions and goals while participating in group hiking and canoe excursions around North Cascades National Park.

“I wanted to create a program for recent graduates to give them the tools and confidence to approach the next chapter in their life with curiosity and excitement rather than fear and anxiety,” said Williams. “They will walk away with an increased sense of courage and clarity, and will also have a strong network of support from a community of peers that will continue to hold each other accountable to stay on track.”

The program cost is $995 with an early bird discount of $200 for registrations before July 5.  The cost includes meals and lodging at the North Cascades Institute, four days of powerful personal- and professional-growth workshops, and one-on-one coaching from Williams before, during and for two months after the program is complete to help participants stay on track. Each aspect of the program is designed to ensure that graduates walk away motivated, inspired, and ready to take on the world.

“The program is for those who want to make a positive difference in the world post-graduation who are looking for some strategies, tools, support and accountability to make their dreams a reality,” Williams said.
