7G PS: Seven Generations Paths to Success

Our program:

Formerly known as the Seven Generation Pathways to Success, Seven Generation Paths to Success (7G PS) was established to address the decline of Native American students in business related degrees. The 7G PS program specifically targets Native American high school students interested in entrepreneurship and/or obtaining a business degree.

This program provided important information on how to prepare for college such as resume building, academic requirements, and goal setting. This interactive college experience allows high school students to gain an exclusive and informative observation on what the Northern Arizona University W. A. Franke College of Business offers. 

7G PS Program Goals:

  1. Increase the number of retention of American Indian students interested in business and entrepreneurship enrolled at NAU.
  2. Increase the students’ sense of belonging to the NAU campus community.
  3. Increase knowledge of the Financial Aid opportunities to support their college experience.
  4. Improve student knowledge of money management.
