Two of the biggest challenges students face in the transition in from adult basic education, the workforce, or even traditional high school into college are a tough, high-stakes setting and a large, complex system full of often unclear or undefined policies and procedures.  First-generation college students in particular struggle, as they have often never seen anyone successfully navigate this overwhelming process.  In this session, participants will learn about Career EASE (exploratory and skill enhancement), a bridge program for students entering I-BEST programs.  Career EASE focuses on the PREP principle, which teaches students to Prepare, Respond, Educate and Plan.  Throughout Career EASE, students refresh basic-skills, learn key "college survival" computer literacy skills and become more informed consumers about the training opportunities available to them.  The end result is a proven 95% success rate in college-training completion.   Participants will have the opportunity to engage with curriculum and program models.

 

Session Length: 1/2 - 1 day
