Improving Post-Secondary Outcomes for Youth LIMITED
Limited Capacity seats available

Many youth are often overwhelmed by the choices that wait for them after high school.  The same can often be said for caregivers, parents and caseworkers!                                                  

Education Planner is a free, on-line website, which is sponsored by PHEAA, the state grant agency. 

This session will take participants through the website from aptitude assessment; career exploration, post-secondary choice consideration (traditional two- and four-year colleges; public versus private choices; vocational and technical schools, Job Corps and military options.) We’ll explore ways to compare colleges; prepare for admissions applications and interviews and discuss financial aid and scholarship opportunities.  The site also offers and we’ll demonstrate innovative resources to help youth understand budgeting, finances, banking and credit options.  As part of the session, the ways that parents and caseworkers can help youth to engage in the process during middle and high school will be presented.  Post-secondary supports and services will also be discussed.
