We focus on bringing attention to the situations and choices young adults will have to face as they transition from elementary school, onto high school, campus life and the working world. We partner with schools, youth groups and organizations to promote independence, confidence and courage.
High School Here I Come: In this workshop, we spend time listening to how students feel about moving to high school. Our activities are geared to lead them to talk about relationships with their family and friends, good study habits, making decisions, well-being and adjusting to being more independent. We reinforce key messages that they are important, values matter and that their voices and opinions are needed.

Campus Readiness? - A discussion on options after high school
The goal of this workshop is to help reduce the fear, stress and anxiety that young adults are experiencing when having to decide what to do after high school. We will talk about the social, emotional, financial and educational elements of choosing. In the presence of other young adults who are considering these same questions, and sharing similar feelings, we will provide each participant with a simple step by step process to help them decide how to make decisions now and in the future. We will also raise awareness of all the options that are available to them after high school.
