  • Helps individual students to envision a plan for post-secondary and target some short- and long-term goals
  • Provides information about all post-secondary and career pathways
  • Supports students in establishing effective study habits and exam preparation
  • Coaches in career/life planning, including college and university scholarship application process
  • Supports students with life skills like decision-making, problem-solving, conflict resolution, stress and time management and relationship awareness
