NEW Module 4: Preparing for College and the Workforce

Help prepare your students for the opportunities and challenges of life after high school. These engaging, interactive lessons start with students envisioning their long-term life goals then mapping an attainable course to reach those goals. They learn how to create dynamic college applications, build social-emotional (SEL) skills for handling academic pressure, develop employability skills, and practice smart decision-making for independent living.

Many 11th and 12th grade students are under tremendous pressure to meet deadlines and expectations. Module 4 provides step-by-step college and job application guidelines while also helping students learn to self-motivate and move forward, avoid over-stressing, manage anxiety through mindfulness techniques, and build skills for mental health and well-being.

"The whole college process is kind of scary, but a good kind of scary, sort of like waiting in line for a roller coaster."
- Gabby G., High School Student
