Since 1868…

Southwestern Advantage has offered a sales & leadership program that gives university students a way to afford their degrees, gain entrepreneurial skills, and build character. Each summer, a sales force of over 1,500 independent student reps market an educational learning system to families across the US & Canada.

Empowers university students with the tools, training, and coaching they need to build their own businesses and gain transferable life skills. Our early learning, homework help, and SAT/ACT resources help millions of children excel – both in school and in life. Student Reps meet with families for short consultative visits to discuss education and show a line of websites, apps, and books that help families reach their academic goals.

everything is earned

Everything Is Earned

Your university does not guarantee you good grades. Your professors and faculty only give you knowledge and suggestions on how to succeed in your courses. Your results are determined by how hard you choose to work, study, and apply their advice.
Our program is the same way.

Coaches and leaders give you the knowledge, tools, and training that tens of thousands of students have used to succeed in the summer. Your results are determined by how hard you choose to work, study, and apply their advice.

Why Door-To-Door

We believe that when we expand our comfort zones, we learn more, gain more, and make a bigger impact. Communication skills, success principles, and empathy are best-developed face-to-face. Student Reps learn how to deal with judgmental types, neutral types, and supportive types – all of which are common in every line of work, as well as life. The amount of emotional maturity that is developed through going door-to-door is unmatched by traditional summer jobs or office internships. We also believe that investing in education should be more than just a transaction – it should be an experience for the family. A university student having an encouraging face-to-face conversation about academics at the kitchen table is an experience parents value for their kids.

There is an incredible amount of fun and perspective to be gained by individuals willing to step outside their comfort zone of friends and relatives (people who typically think and act the same as they do) to visit with families from different walks of life. If a day comes when we discover a better way of helping young people gain the same amounts of character and entrepreneurial skills – while serving as many families as we do over a summer break – we’ll change our methodology. The reason our program has worked for over 150 years is because it’s built on timeless principles, not procedures.
There are countless ways to earn money, to learn about yourself and the world around you, and to grow by serving – but the way to earn, learn, and grow the most is by going door-to-door. We believe in doing what others won’t, to enjoy the opportunities that others don’t.
