This week ASK is helping some of our rising high school juniors and seniors get a head start on their college application process through our first College Prep Workshop. This three-day program was organized under The Launch Project, our newest initiative aimed at helping teen and young adult survivors successfully navigate life after graduation.
Our survivors are completing their Common Application and developing their essays for submission through a workshop led by Rachel Loving of 1st Choice College Counseling.
College application assistance is just one way The Launch Project is encouraging the growth and development of our emerging adults this year. This fall we will be offer another workshop in partnership with Goodwill Industries that will focus on job seeking skills. We will cover topics like resume building, job application etiquette and interviewing skills. The Launch Project also continues to offer individual coaching to patients and survivors.
ASK currently has 22 participants in The Launch Project. If you’d like to learn more about the program, please contact ASK’s Launch Project Coordinator Britni Higginbotham at firstname.lastname@example.org.
