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 learning (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
