About Us

According to the Huffington Post, nearly 80% of young adults are in careers they don’t want, but have trouble figuring out the steps to take to get to their dream job. Continuing Progression Center (CPC) is a non-profit based in Dallas, Texas, dedicated to changing that. Over a course of 6 weeks, CPC assists young adults in the following areas:

  • setting life goals
  • using social media to grow your professional network
  • building a strong, solid resume
  • managing your new finances
  • building a robust financial retirement plan
  • coaching on how to identify positive influences and mentors
  • Graduates of CPC are equipped with the skills necessary to progress in life further educationally, academically and financially. Students walk away from the program feeling confident enough to determine the next step in their lives and then take that step to pursue their dreams.
