Technology has revolutionized the way people do their jobs. Instead of long careers with one or two employers, many workers are patching together a series of one-time jobs (gigs) to earn the annual income they need. Gigs can be single-day tasks, involve long- or short-term contracts, or be random freelance work.

Futurists tell us that permanent jobs will be the exception rather than the norm. Even individuals in permanent jobs may need to ‘job hop’ to achieve the title and salary they want in today’s ‘flattened’ management structures.

To succeed, today’s students (YOU!) will need skills that will be very different from those their parents have. You will need to know how to market skills to potential employers on a regular basis. You will have to rise above the worldwide competition for available job opportunities.

In fact, what you may have to do is create your own jobs and, in doing so, become a ‘Rainmaker.’

In the world of work, Rainmakers are influential employees who make things happen with limited resources and often against overwhelming odds.

How We Help Students Prepare


High school students can begin their journey to Rainmaker status AND earn money in the Gig Economy by the end of high school and through college or trade school with our targeted training and mentoring.

The skills that make Rainmakers so effective can be learned in our one-of-a-kind Rainmakers Internship Preparation Program (RIPP), which prepares high school juniors and seniors for tomorrow’s workforce and for entry into the Gig Economy NOW, where they (YOU!) can achieve income/college/career goals.

We don’t wait until high school to tell students what they need to be successful in work — we aim to be a small but insistent voice for work readiness starting in eighth grade with our proprietary curriculum The First Rung. We continue through the first two years of high school with our unique Stormy Wannabees Advantage Initiative.

We complete our work in junior and senior year with RIIP.

Ask your school administrators — or have your parents ask them — to work with us to introduce our program into your school right away so you can learn how to make it rain!

Your Success. Your Internship. Your Future.


Academic learning is key, so we minimize impact on the school day. We need only 90 minutes of class time in sophomore and again in junior year. Other activities are offered as integrated curriculum or distance-learning experiences that students can fit into their busy schedules after-school and on weekends.*


Students prepare for their internships through a variety of live team-based competitions. Online learning opportunities include Mentor teleconferences (offered as ‘live’ after-school or weekend events and as recorded sessions for students who cannot join the live experience), curated podcasts, and website activities.*


We maximize student time by simulating tomorrow’s ‘gig’ workplace. We emphasize the academic and marketing skills they need to get a job. Our internships are remote and only two weeks long. Thus prepared, students can join the Gig Economy, where they can seek and secure employment before and/or after they leave school.*


Experienced business people and college officials interact with our student participants and help them understand what it takes to be successful in the competitive environments of college admissions and job acquisition in dynamic online discussions that invigorate participant engagement and help ensure student success.*


All students on a class team can get an ‘A’ because they are judged against a set standard. In business, only one person gets the promotion or the raise. Our participants can work with friends, but competition within and between teams mimic that in business and may change the nature of current or future relationships.*

*To participate in any part of our high school or college program of work, participating students will need a smart phone that has, at a minimum, access to email and video streaming. Most activities do not require a computer but when and if necessary, students can use their own, or access one in a school or local library. Our eighth grade program is designed to be delivered in school under the guidance of classroom teachers and none of the activities offered in that program requires technology use outside the classroom.

Learn How to Make It Rain


We Offer Learning That Can Help Increase Your Earning

Our internships are not ‘given’ to anyone. 
Our internships must be earned.

Students who secure and do well in an internship will stand out from the crowd in the competition for available college placements and employment opportunities.

But we don’t put our name behind just anyone.

The designation of ‘Rainmaker’ is awarded to young adults who complete our Rainmakers Internship Preparation Program (RIPP) and, as a result, have gained the professional audacity they need to seek, select, solicit, secure, and successfully serve one of our ‘reinvented’ internships.

Our program presents opportunities for students in grades 8 – 12 to mimic the exact processes they will need to use as adults when they are looking for full- or part-time jobs in traditional or remote work situations. By experiencing the competitive conditions they will encounter in their futures while they are still in school, they will be better prepared for the competitive pressures they will face.

Together, the academic, technical, and/or vocational skills learned in school and our curricula, activities, team competitions, real world simulations, Mentor support, and the experience gained in one of our Rainmakers internships, will equip participants to seek income opportunities in the Gig Economy before they graduate from high school and/or while they are in college/industry-specific trade schools after high school.

Young adults who participate in our Rainmakers Internship Preparation Program will be better prepared for the challenges associated with entry into the world of work, be it in a traditional or online position.

Teens who successfully complete their self-generated internships are dubbed ‘Rainmakers’ and are eligible for FREE lifetime memberships in The Rainmakers Club, an online community focused on building professional networks and increasing the chances of job acquisition.

Why Should the Adults You Know Advocate for a Rainmakers Internship Preparation Program (RIPP) in Your School District? 

Teachers and
Parents and

Adults need to know that you will require more training and preparation to be successful in the workplace than any generation before you.

Do you know an adult who is dedicated to the success of high school students?

Perhaps you know a special teacher or principal, or parents who participate in your school’s PTA. Or maybe you have relatives that might be business leaders or other adults who are deeply committed to your community. Have them speak with your high school leadership (principals or superintendents) about adopting our programs in your school.

Help Our Teens Go from Good to GREAT!

Give Them the Advantage of Your Wisdom

Help young adults understand what the world will expect from them.

Help shape what young people should expect from the world.

Too often, the transition from high school to college, or from high school or college to the world of work, is made more difficult if expectations are unrealistic.

Futurists are projecting that more than any other time in our industrialized history, a greater number of jobs will become obsolete faster than we can predict. Jobs that will be available will require more preparation than ever before.

Incoming workers – students who are still in school today – must be better educated and MORE resilient, not less so.

Yet some studies suggest that the reverse is true … students in school today have not been given the chance to learn how to be tenacious, to persevere, to overcome obstacles without complaint. In short, these future workers may lack ‘grit.’

We need adults who are strong leaders who can help us work to build a generation that will have the backbone it will take to take over our world.
