TANG presented Preparing for the College Years

On Wednesday, October 26, 2016, Temple Avodah’s Networking Group, TANG, presented a program called Preparing For The College Years. This educational seminar was for teens ages 12-18 and their parents, providing vital information what to think about and how to plan for college. The panel addressed the mindset, attitude, aptitude, and personal and financial organization needed to prepare for these precious years.
Paul Engel LCSW spoke about strategies to alleviate and cope with mental stressors. He discussed helping teens and parents to prepare and cope with the decisions and challenges when selecting a college and planning to live away from home. Audrey Quick, Personal Trainer, Nutrition Educator and Health Coach, discussed making healthy choices and involving your teen in food decisions now, to impact their choices for their future. Rochelle Sanchez, Educator, discussed management of test-taking anxiety and the importance of teaching teens how to take a test. Alan Winter, Financial Representative, spoke about the sequence of savings and plans to save for college. Dr. Rachelle Wolosoff, College Search Expert LLC, discussed what colleges look for in admissions and how you can best prepare for college. She expressed the importance of knowing what you want from a college and how choosing the right school initially can save you valuable time, effort and money. Jordan Kaplan, Financial Representative, focused on the importance of having a savings plan and coordinating with experts who can help you. He discussed how college is one component of the lifestyle you are living today and having the right plan with the right people helping you will help avoid the stress of the process.

A question and answer session followed the panel’s presentation and questions were asked by parents and the teenagers about healthy eating, high school courses and types to take, what colleges really look for and how to make themselves stand out when applying for college.
