High school students and parents now have the opportunity to turn some of their new-found time together into something positive and rewarding by opening the conversation about life after high school.
The Charlotte-based developers of the Student Career Path Planning Program believe they can help students and parents make the most of all those hours they are spending at home by offering their online program for free for 30 days.
A $350 value, the program was designed to help answer many of the questions high schoolers and parents have about the future. It helps students learn more about themselves, so they can put together a plan to get where they want to go while working with their parents and a career coach.
“This is for parents and students. It can help them have really great conversations while they are spending more time together than usual these days,” said Cathie Clarkson, program director and coach. “It’s an opportunity to help them put this time together to good use; to actually gain some momentum on the student’s path to the future.
“That plan may involve college, vocational school, the military or something else altogether, but until a teenager begins to understand some basic truths about themselves, they may end up somewhere they don’t want to be.”
The Student Career Path Planning Program helps a student determine the path that works best for them. It has them look at their strengths and acknowledge their weaknesses and helps them discover things about themselves that will help them create a path for success.
The program includes online courses with easy-to-understand lessons, videos, assessments, activities and live, real-time coaching. Parallel parent curriculum helps everyone develop common language for conversations and decisions for the future.
