The Prepare to Launch U Program
Prepare To Launch U is a complete online course designed to guide you through the unique challenges of re-entering the workforce after opting out to care for family. It addresses you, the whole woman, your personal and professional sides. The course is offered every winter, spring and fall, and students take it together in cohorts of 10-12, over twelve weeks.
The Prepare to Launch U course provides the instruction, inspiration and practical tools you need to launch successfully – all in a flexible, self-paced format that fits your life, your schedule, and your goals. What began as a successful live course, is now available online!
Even the most accomplished women need guidance, encouragement and tools to navigate their return to the rapidly changing workplace. Whatever your situation and wherever you are on your journey, Prepare to Launch U is your roadmap to success. Don’t go it alone; let us be your guides.
With three modules of videos, exercises, downloadable activities and tools, the Prepare to Launch U course fully prepares you to return to the workplace.
In Module I, you will uncover your values, strengths, skills and much more to learn Who You Are Now.
In Module II, you will begin to define Where You Are Going, and identify (and develop strategies to overcome) What is Getting In The Way.
Then, in Module III, you will learn the skills (like networking, interviewing and negotiating), create the tools (like résumé, LinkedIn profile, and elevator pitch), and receive the emotional support and inspiration you need for your successful Relaunch!
And the best part? You can access it all in a fully flexible, self-paced format that fits your life, your schedule, and your goals – and it’s yours to keep for a full year.

We’ve created our own online social network of Prepare to Launch U students eager to meet and ready to help each other out; it’s called the LaunchPad and you can easily access it from our site. You and the other students in your course cohort will connect here to ask questions, share learning, keep each other accountable and develop lasting friendships.
Susan and Kelley hop on the LaunchPad, too, to answer your questions, offer guidance and inspiration, and post interesting, timely content.
Think of the LaunchPad as your cohort’s exclusive meeting place. We look forward to seeing you there!
Prepare to Launch U students are never alone.
Returning to work can be a daunting process, that’s why we don’t let you go it alone. Instead, as a PTLU student you’ll be assigned to a course cohort of other re-launchers taking the journey with you. Together, you will take the course with us in twelve manageable chunks over twelve defined weeks. Each Friday, we will connect via live video chat* to review what was learned, answer your questions, and keep you motivated and on track.
Our students rave about the cohort experience. They love how it keeps them engaged, accountable and energized every step of the way. They meet likeminded people and develop friendships – many of which continue long after the twelve weeks.
The Prepare to Launch U course is offered three times per year, Winter, Spring and Fall. Our next cohort runs September 16 – December 6, 2019. We hope to see you there!
*Video chats will be offered at multiple times to fit students’ schedules. All chats will be recorded and available online for students in the cohort.
Students of Prepare to Launch U have access to the course for one full year. It includes:
33 essential, dynamic and highly engaging video lessons and exercises
a workbook with 50 companion activity pages and templates, also available as downloadable pages
membership in the LaunchPad, our proprietary social network of other fellow students and re-launchers
weekly live video chats with Kelley, Susan and the other relaunchers in your cohort
and private 1:1 coaching and/or resumé review sessions, as allowed in course Options II and III.
We all have different learning styles and preferences, so Prepare to Launch U is offered in three unique ways.
Pick the one that’s best for you!
