WHO ARE WE:
C.H.A.L.L.E.N.G.E. L.Y.F.E. (CL) is a YOUTH AND YOUNG ADULT CAREER EXPLORATION ORGANIZATION!
Mentoring is a proven method of transferring knowledge and wisdom from one generation to the next. We at CL understand choosing a career is one of the most important decisions we will make in our lives. So it was a natural progression to marry the proven mentoring model with career research. Whether you're still in Junior High School or 29 years old and longing to change professions, our CL 10P Method of career exploration will make your vocation decision easier and faster. Understanding that most people spend countless hours on their jobs, it is only logical to expect that they like and hopefully love the work they do. However, a new Gallup poll revealed that 85% of people either hate their jobs or are looking for new employment. This is why CL was created; to help our Youth and Young Adults, especially those that are socially and economically challenged, explore and find a career that will fit them socially, emotionally, and economically!

CDR (Ret.) Rev., Dr. Veneda Polite has been a youth and young adult mentor for over 25 years. She has developed and led numerous programs to enhance the lives of our future leaders. Growing up in the projects of New York City and living in poverty the majority of her youth, Veneda knows first hand the detrimental effects of social, emotional, and economic underdevelopment. She left NYC and joined the U.S. Army in order to escape the cycle of becoming a product of her toxic environment.
After changing careers multiple times throughout her life, without job fulfilment, Veneda finally found vocation exhilaration and C.H.A.L.L.E.N.G.E. L.Y.F.E. was born from the desire to never let our next generation fumble through their career choices. She believes Mentorship, Education, Knowledge and Wisdom are the Keys to a Successful LYFE!!
