a little about our founder

MEET traci bakenhaster

founder of Raising the Next Gen & Adulting University

Use this area to tell your story. Talk about your failure when you first started looking for a solution. Maybe there was a conspiracy against you, a false belief, a misunderstanding.

Traci started Adulting University as a way to help teens, young adults, and families be prepared for adulthood.

She knows what happens when you are not prepared for adulthood...

Her entire mission is to teach "adulting" to teens and young adults everywhere. She has a very diverse background with over 12 years of experience in career development, higher education, and industry. She has her masters, bachelors, and two associate degrees and multiple certifications.


Traci is a lifelong learner and is always bettering herself to help her students. She and Adulting University have been featured in several articles and podcasts. Several are listed below!

STRAIGHT FROM SOME OF THE STUDENTS WE HAVE WORKED WITH...

Raising the Next Gen was an amazing experience! Our classes were specifically choose to make the most of our time while also teaching us the most valuable things for our age group. The booklets were colorful, and attention grabbing- helping us keep on track and enthusiastic about the lesson. It also showed the amount of time and passion the creator has! I learned many new things, such as how to start off my adult life smart, healthy, and right. I learned almost all the things my school neglected to tell me, which will save my future! I think the experience was totally worth the time and effort!

-Lori C. HS Senior

Our group was lucky enough to spend 2 weeks with Traci! Our members were taught the most important life -skills & adulting tips! Such an amazing experience. Thank you so much! Fully recommend this service for anyone & everyone, specifically great for young adults.

-Jenna H. College Senior

After coming to the realization that our plans for my son going to a specific college had changed at the last minute we were scrambling to find a solution. We were referred to Traci in February and my son was graduating in May so we had a lot of work to do in a short time. We met weekly and worked on scholarships and narrowing down his plan of not only where to go but a pretty specific career path. In the end he got an amazing scholarship that saved us a lot of money and he had a plan for his future. Well worth every moment spent with Traci!
