Upcoming Prep Workshops

Get Ready to LEAP!

Calling all High School Seniors!

LEAP (Life Expectations and Planning) is a workshop series to help you transition from high school senior to young adult. Whether you’re planning for college, military or career, LEAP will help you prepare.

LEAP is a bi-weekly program that meets from 3:15 – 4:30 p.m. at the WELL on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of every month. Participants will work with staff to ensure students meet deadlines, file paperwork and are prepared for their post-secondary plans. The program includes many outside speakers as well as field trips. Students will be assigned a mentor for support as well.

LEAP is for high-school seniors only, especially those that may be 1st generation college students or those who are uncertain about the post-graduation plans. Limited to 20 participants.

Parents – there will be information and workshops for you too!

Let us help you be successful! Register now.  The program starts October 2nd.
