Through Level UP: Impact Edition, Adults Transitioning Through Traumatic Life Events will Have Access to Professional Career Coaching in Hopes of Discovering Meaningful Career Paths

Grafton, Wis. – The Kacmarcik Center , part of the Kacmarcik Enterprises family of companies, today announced a partnership with United Way of Northern Ozaukee and Advocates of Ozaukee County to launch Level UP™: Impact Edition, a community-focused career coaching program developed to support adults who have been affected by trauma or are navigating a crisis.

Through programming at the Kacmarcik Center that includes personal coaching, life coaching, and sessions that seek to develop the mind, body, and spirit, Level UP™: Impact Edition aims to set all participating individuals on a course to thrive personally and professionally. Each participant will be led through a customized experience based on their goals and background with a certified career coach while leveraging the Kacmarcik Center’s Level UP™ Performance Accelerator.

According to Dr. Richard D. Tedeschi, individuals emerging from traumatic life experiences can be positioned well for “posttraumatic growth,” a phenomenon where negative experiences spur positive change in relationships, spiritual growth, increased personal strength, and a renewed career arc in their professional lives.

“Level UP: Impact Edition is a beautiful representation of all three organizations partnering in this initiative to help individuals find their path, their purpose, and connect with themselves differently as they progress through their post-trauma journey,” said Jim Kacmarcik, Chairman and CEO of Kacmarcik Enterprises. “We are focused on helping individuals in our community truly thrive, and we’re proud to partner with United Way and Advocates to help bring that mission to life through this program.”

Together, the Kacmarcik Center, United Way of Northern Ozaukee County, and Advocates will work to identify individuals who have progressed through their trauma recovery and are ready to explore their next steps regarding their career journey.

For more than 40 years, Advocates has supported and empowered victims in Southeastern Wisconsin who have grappled with domestic and sexual violence.

“We are excited to partner with the Kacmarcik Center to bring this program to life, which we see as both a pragmatic and visionary extension of the work we do through Advocates and the United Way,” said Barb Fischer, Executive Director of Advocates of Ozaukee, Inc. “It’s truly amazing to have resources and expertise available through the Kacmarcik Center to organizations like ours that can make a meaningful difference in the lives of the people we support and our community.”
