“What’s Next?” Postsecondary Education E-Learning Modules

 
  • Description of Resource:

    The “What’s Next?” Post-Secondary Education Modules are designed to support mentors and youth working together to explore career paths, plan for meaningful higher education, and navigate the college application and admission processes. Originally designed for use in YouthBuild programs, these interactive e-learning modules provide a match with key information and a number of activities that are designed to help older students set a clear education and career path with the help of a mentor.

    The first module, What’s Next? Introduction to Postsecondary Education Planning, provides an overview of how to explore careers and associated higher education opportunities. It features downloadable planning tools and activities that can help youth move from “thinking about” to “doing” when it comes to a post-high school plan.

    The second module, What's Next? College Knowledge, is designed to help mentors and mentees explore the actions and attitudes needed for a successful transition to college. It addresses the key steps of choosing a school, financing their education, taking placement exams, and taking ownership of the transition.
