Creative Summer Planning

Join us on Tuesday, May 16 at 7:00 PM EDT to discover how to maximize the summer 2023 and find activities that are meaningful to you!

About this Event

Summer 2023 will be here in 1 month, and as a parent of a teen – you probably are wondering what your child should/could be doing. In addition to personal growth, doing something besides sleeping and going on TikTok during the summer months (when there is more free time) can be helpful for students and their college applications. Collegewise counselors will discuss how your teens can really use this time to develop curiosity, initiative, and passion to learn and grow during summer.
