Identify your next step
and move forward with confidence in your decisions!

Navigate isn’t your average life purpose course. We don’t promise you a flawless life plan. Rather, Navigate will provide you with a framework to handle the questions and decisions life throws at you with wisdom and discernment.

Navigate students learn how to answer questions like…

  • How do I figure out God’s will for my life?
  • How do I know what I should do after high school?
  • How do I handle too many interests – or not enough?
  • How do I get un-stuck and find motivation?

Meet Your Instructor

JONATHAN BRUSH is the President and CEO of Unbound, a homeschool graduate, and a homeschool dad of six. He worked for nine years as a Director of Admissions for a private liberal arts college and has since worked in non-traditional higher education for over a decade.

Jonathan loves Unbound and Unbound students and dreams every single day about new ways to connect them to each other. He gets to work with the world’s best team and the most amazing student body in the history of the world (which is just as awesome as it sounds), and field questions about Rule 4 violations (ask an Unbound student to explain).

Jonathan and his family make their home in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.

“I really, really appreciated this class, more than you know.”

Should I still take Navigate if I already know what I am doing next? Growing up isn’t just about answering “what’s next?” once. In fact, you’ll face significant decisions with major consequences throughout the rest of your life. Navigate is designed to teach you how to make wise, discerning choices, regardless of what decision you happen to be facing now.

What if I’m not interested in pursuing college? Navigate is for any young adult seeking to discover their life purpose, learn more about who God created them to be, and gain an effective strategy for determining their next step. Whether you are pursuing college, a career, a trade, or just exploring right now, Navigate is designed to set you up to launch into whatever is next armed with an understanding of your purpose, God’s will for you life, and the ability to ask good questions

“I have been able to see how my skills and personality have been built through the situations God has placed me in..."

[Navigate] helped me feel normal that I didn't know all the answers yet, and it encouraged me to pick something to do.
