- Does preparing your teen for college feel confusing and overwhelming to you?
- Are you wondering how to navigate the college process given all the changes since Covid-19?
- Are you feeling anxious about what your teen’s future after high school will be?
This interactive and engaging masterclass will answer your most pressing questions about your teen’s future. It doesn’t matter if your teen is well along their journey or feeling stressed about being “behind”, this masterclass will change the way you see getting in and getting money for college. This will truly be the proverbial “perfect time” to make sure your teen reaches their highest potential without you going broke!
From hybrid learning to “test optional” and the increased attention on DEI, it’s hard to know what to do, when to do it and whether it makes sense for your teen. In this era of two pandemics – Rona and Race – it’s also very important to be clear about the colleges on your teen’s list so that you are not blindly sending them to a college that’s the wrong cultural fit and stifles their future. The double impact of these crises have re-defined the college-readiness landscape as we know it for our Black youth!
During our time together, you will learn:
- What’s changed and what’s the same through this crisis in the college landscape that you must know
- How to choose the right college (and exactly what you need to look for)
- What it takes for our teens to get into college these days (and how to be prepared)
- Where to find the money for college even long before they go
- The #1 mistake parents make when trying to help their teen GET IN and GET MONEY for college
Please join us for this engaging master class and candid conversation about what you can do to prepare your teen during these uncertain times!
