Thinking about what comes after high school is stressful!
Our Adulting Series demystifies the hardest and scariest parts of growing up. This 4-week series is made up of seminars and workshops on topics like personal finance and info sessions on various career paths, all led by local experts.
The Spring Adulting Series program consists of 2 separate workshops that cover a variety of topics and aims to de-mystify what can make "adulting" seem so scary, thereby preparing teens for the challenges that come with life beyond high school. Each workshop incorporates a unique theme that offers an in-depth look at potential careers while supplying teens with the essential guidance that will set their futures on the fast track for success.
