College Transition Workshop

Empower Your Teen to Arrive on Campus Prepared


The workshop is targeted to students that are starting college this fall but are anxious about not feeling prepared for the transition. During six sessions, we give your student tools and information to make them feel more ready. Each session has a topic and the student will be given practical information, tools, and tips related to each.
