This workshop will address the pervasive catchphrase “college and career readiness” and offer tutors age-appropriate activities to engage students in career exploration and preparation. The webinar will also introduce participants to three popular online navigation systems currently used by schools to help students identify and inventory their job interests, and then apply to the appropriate colleges based on these interests.
