Guiding students to pursue their passions is a strong motivator to help them stay in school. Youth is faced with many challenges that impact their social/emotional health. By attending to students' dimensions of motivation (competence, control/autonomy, interest/value, and relatedness) school personnel have the potential to keep students engaged in school as they connect to their dreams. A college and career program that is attentive to students’ social/emotional development is a medium by which students can be inspired to pursue their dreams. Participants will walk away with strategies to keep students connected to their passions in their collegiate pursuit. Please join us as Dr. Tina Polishchuk talks about this important topic.
