Equipping Teens to Build a Successful Future on Their Own Terms

Presented By:  Stephanie Haynes,
Education Coach and Consultant
Tues. March 1st - 1:00 PM EST

We all want today’s teens to be successful after high school. What isn’t so clear is how to help them build a pathway to success that fits their values, passions, and personalities. In today’s college-is-the-only-real-option culture it’s difficult to help teens understand all the options available to them and feel like you are effective at helping them build a future they can be excited about. Equipping Teens to Build a Successful Future On Their Own Terms will teach you why it's important to break out of the mold of today’s one-size-fits-all mentality and how to help the teens in your life to build a successful post-graduation pathway on their own terms.
