Benefits of college prep IMPACT training
College-bound students need skills to help them transition from a parent- to peer-centered environment. Here’s how participants benefit from the College Prep Workshop.
Effective assessment skills
Students will be better prepared to assess options and make appropriate choices. They learn to think on their feet and act decisively, when to intervene, and when to walk away. They develop foresight and introspection necessary to the daily demands of a college student.
Solid communications skills are important to every aspect of campus life. Students learn how to:
- Ask for what they want
- Take responsibility for their needs
Students with Impact training are equipped for potentially dangerous situations like walking home late or dealing with conflict in the dorm or at social gatherings. They will also be better prepared to handle challenging discussions with peers, professors, and employers.
After participating in our interactive workshop, students are more likely to meet future challenges at school with enthusiasm and a “can-do” attitude. Students’ confidence improves through in-class success.
Peer support and respect
Participants learn peer support systems and build respect for each other’s strengths. This promotes greater empathy for diverse student populations on campus.
