Bridging the Transition to College (Online Tutorial and Classes)

Designed to support a successful transition to college, this class uses a combination of online and in person group work to explore the skills needed for success in college and as young adult.  Using an established curriculum from Human Esources, used at colleges and universities nationwide, we will present topics which are relevant to any and all young adults looking for skills to live and thrive independently in their post-secondary life.  Sometimes, taking the time to explore, and discuss, the

many elements of independent studying and living helps you to be more proactive, and realize that you are not alone as you manage the many challenges of starting college!  You may join one or all of the components of these classes.  Topics include the following: College Study Skills, Major and Career Exploration.  Best taken the summer before leaving for college, or during your first Winter break back home.  Call for more details.
