Transition To College Workshop 2012

Is your son or daughter going off to college and you worry about them achieving their goals without the structure and supports they had in high school? Or is he/she returning to school and would like a more successful year?

The Weaver Center’s 4-session workshop helps with the transition to college and develops personalized strategies to get the most out of the college years.

Highlights of the workshop include:
~ Preparing for your college arrival: defining college success, goals, what to bring, your learning style and strengths, arranging for accommodations if needed
~ The first week of school: time management, how to select courses, decision making, communication and self-advocacy, establishing a routine, meeting others and making friends
~ Academics: study and note-taking strategies, project planning, asking for help and being pro-active
~ Life Balance and Maintenance: dealing with distractions, avoiding over-scheduling, sleep, nutrition, exercise, managing your money and free time

Workshops will be conducted by Marla Stone, M.A., a Life and Executive Function Coach. She works with teens and adults with a focus on high school students transitioning to college.

Four sessions: June 12, 14, 19, 21. 6:30-8:00 pm
Workshop price: $395*
*First 3 students to register will receive 2 free telephone check-ins two weeks and four weeks after college starts. (a $150 value)

(If you are interested but evenings do not fit your schedule, please let us know. If there is enough interest, we will add an afternoon workshop.)

SPACE IS LIMITED! To register, please call 508-358-1112, ext. 210.
