We often frame college as a place young adults go to find themselves. Ironically, those teens who already have a strong sense of who they are and what they stand for are the ones with the most success in the admissions process. Amy and Mike invited educational consultants Beth and Greg Langston to describe the importance of helping teens find their values and purpose.
What are five things you will learn in this episode?
- Is active self-discovery necessary for many teens?
- Why self-discovery is important for college admissions
- What process might students follow to gain clarity, confidence, and control about their values and purpose?
- What qualities should teens look for in trusted advisors?
- The power of being able to articulate values and purpose
