About This Webinar

What do you wish you knew when you were applying to college? What skills do you wish you’d learned before you left high school?
Personal management?
Better decision making?
Work/Life balance?
Self advocacy?
Perhaps you wish you’d learned how to have a little faith in the unknown?

All of this we could be teaching teens through the college-admissions journey; this whole adventure could be massively transformative in these formidable years, but instead, we’re missing the boat.
Join this thoughtful discussion and consider how we can save the college journey from the chaos we see today and turn it into an experience that leaves students learning more from the journey than the destination.
