Workshop Descriptions

Empty Nesters (Parents/Guardians Only Session)

Sometimes it’s NOT easy to let go when your high-school student moves on to college. But there are real, practical things you can do to ease the many issues and situations that arise in that process. Empty Nesters helps you wrestle with those issues and, hopefully, find tangible ways to make progress as the “kid” becomes a college student, and then blossoms into an adult. This session addresses college costs, attitude adjustments, shaping the next four (or more) years so that you maintain your sanity and your young adult’s path is made a bit easier.

 

Financial Preparedness for Your Future

This session will share financial nuggets, discuss the importance of money management and plant seeds to prepare parents and students for financial success as they prepare for college.

 

Gap Year: A Year of Exploration & Planning

Do you feel like there’s something you want/need to do before you go to college? What about earning extra income for the expense of college, studying abroad or taking a year to focus on something meaningful? This session shows a wide variety of options available to let you explore life outside the usual classroom setting before formalizing your studies at a college.

 

Georgia vs Everybody!

Don’t know whether to stay or go? Find out the benefits of staying in Georgia for college. Quality of education, scholarship opportunities, dual-enrollment programs are just a few of the topics you’ll explore!

 

Getting In vs Going

You’ve got to “make the grade,” then you’ve got to “make the decision.” Getting into college is one thing, deciding where to go is another. Getting In vs. Going gives you the tools and tips to do both and empowers you to make informed decisions to select the "best fit" college for YOU. You will learn to make strategic choices, identify deal-breakers in the college selection process, look beyond rankings and much more.
