Why Go to College? Career/Major Thinking for Teens™ (Grades 8-12)

Why does anyone go to college? We often hear "to get a better job." However, so many teens embark on the college search process without taking time to consider careers and majors--the two things that should be driving the process. What do you need to know right now, while your teen is still in high school? There are steps parents can take to help their teens with career and major decisions which are right around the corner. Webinar topics include: how can a student really learn about CAREERS and tie them to college MAJORS, tips we can share from our work with teens and families, what employers and colleges have to say about making a successful transition to the working world, resources and tools your family may value, and more.

Extracurriculars: Supporting Your Teen’s Growth Outside of School™ (Grades 8-11)

When parents are looking for that "secret sauce" for college applications, they often have questions about extracurriculars. How many do we need? Are some better than others? What are colleges looking for? (By the way, there is no "secret sauce"-just a well-laid plan that fits your child.) This webinar answers those questions and also goes deeper into how time spent in extracurricular activities can fuel your child's personal, academic, mental, and social development. Our webinar will include valuable insight into: types of extracurriculars, why engage in them, how time spent in these activities will support growth, what colleges are looking for, finding a good fit for extracurriculars, developing "leadership", and more.
