This workshop will help tutors build their students’ college knowledge by nurturing college-going aspirations, which come from intrinsic motivation and the belief in one’s ability to achieve and succeed. School on Wheels students often face hardships that can make it difficult to view college and other opportunities as attainable. Tutors will learn activities for different grades to nurture an “I can” attitude that includes how to plan and prepare for college, but also stresses the value of lifelong learning.
