The High School Readiness Summit includes a parent portion as well!

Students Will Learn:

  • How to budget properly through interactive activities
  • Develop and grow your advocacy skills
  • Learn about the expectations as a 10,000 Degrees High School Student
  • Learn about resources available to students on their high school campus
  • And much more!
