I have known Doug Shirley for many years having worked closely with him as a Career Development Coordinator.  His creative approach to the area of career development is one that keeps abreast of the latest technologies, and student needs providing them with informative information that guides them to seriously ponder their future options when it comes to educational and career goals.

Walk the Walk© is a wonderful career program that provides necessary hands on training to help students succeed in future careers. Doug introduced this program at my school and it made an immediate impact on my students.  Any school system would benefit greatly from participation.

In the 20 years that I have known Doug Shirley, I have never met any individual with a greater passion to serve and assist students with their career pursuits and growth.  He truly has created a unique and powerful career development program that will transform students' lives positively, especially those considered at-risk.  Your students will benefit greatly by participating in the Walk the Walk© program.

Doug Shirley's work with at risk students is innovative and straightforward. There is a "common sense" pragmatism that he ties to unabashed idealism with the thought that "you CAN make a difference in the lives of young people." Doug Shirley's dedication to these core principles throughout his career drives him to want to see all students be successful in their whole life. This comes with the understanding that meaningful career choices are a tremendous aid to lifetime success.
