Is your 8th grade teen one of hundreds applying for entrance to a high school that has a competitive selection process?
Does your teen know what sets them apart to increase
the chance of winning one of these spots?
Can your teen answer the question, "What are you going
to do after graduation from high school?"
Do they know what steps they need to follow
to find the answer?
Do they know what skills and experiences are required?
Can they talk about their skills in an interview
or on a written application?
Is your teen able to understand the job qualifications and convince the employer that their skills and experiences make them the best qualified candidate?
To stay abreast in the changing economic environment our children need to be prepared to compete and the late-middle school and high school years are a crucial time to begin defining a “path” for post-high school opportunities.
P4 – Plan for the Future workshops give teens a great foundation to build upon by helping them discover their interests, strengths, skills and aspirations and develop the tools that will help direct their future.
Grades 7-10 are the ideal time for this self-discovery because the information learned can be put to use throughout the high school years and there is more peace and personal satisfaction in knowing you are heading in a positive direction.
There are many books and websites where teens can read about the “how and why” of successful planning. As a participant of P4 workshops they are guided through the process with materials developed by Ultimate Success 2. Our workshop leaders not only teach, they also give practical applications for using our tools which ensures that students actually understand the importance of what they are learning and how it fits into their overall plan.
P4 – Plan for the Future workshops provide guidance and support to:
Build a foundation for success: P4 workshops help students discover their interests, strengths, skills and aspirations and develop the tools that will help direct their future, proving useful when selecting schools, careers and jobs.
Demystify the process: P4 workshops explain the admissions process. The tools created by each student helps them move through the process with confidence.

Over 75% of today’s high school juniors and seniors
do not know what direction they want to take with
their lives in terms of a career or major interest.
Almost half of all college students begin their
post-secondary educational journey with little
to no clue of what they really want to pursue.
“Undecided” is clearly the most popular
“Major” in the freshman year of college.
Studies show that many students choose their
college in very interesting ways. Prior to college,
students cite they chose their major based on:
What their best friend is studying…
What mom and dad told them they SHOULD study…
A course they excelled in during previous
What courses fit into their schedule…
The “average” cost of a year of college hovers
3 out of every 5 college students change majors at least once, with 3 times being the average. With every major change, on the average, one year of college is added to the student’s path.
Can you afford to pay for more than four years of college?
