Teens Take Charge with Skip Coaching
Monday, September 21 or Wednesday, September 23 @ 7:00 pm
This fall, teens face a hybrid school model and fewer extracurricular activities. This can be a blessing and a curse. Without a strict schedule, the day can feel like a big gray blob making it difficult for students to take charge and be independent. In this environment, executive function skills are critical for teens’ success. Skip Coaching’s Teens Take Charge program provides insights for how to plan, prioritize, manage time, and take responsibility.
Join us for one of these sessions via Zoom.  There will be time for Q&A after the presentation.

HOW COVID-19 HAS CHANGED COLLEGE ADMISSIONS VIA ZOOM

October 13 @ 7 – 8pm

Mamaroneck Library has partnered with Stand Out For College, LLC to help families understand how the college admissions landscape is changing due to COVID-19 and what impact it will have on Freshman, Sophomores and Juniors.
Please email the Mamaroneck Library@ mamklibteens@gmail.com,
Subject Line: College or RSVP to ron@standoutforcollege.com to receive a private invitation with a Zoom link in reply. There is no charge for this event.
The college admissions process is undergoing significant and lasting changes as many colleges and universities have gone test optional for this current admissions cycle and will evaluate their standardized testing policies going forward. With the opportunity for visiting colleges curtailed, we’ll discuss how students can engage with colleges virtually to help them develop a preliminary list of colleges to consider visiting when campuses are fully open.
We will discuss the holistic review process and focus on the greater consideration admissions officers will give to extracurricular activities as they will have fewer data points to rely on due to the disruptions from COVID-19.
This program covers how admissions officers are handling the current situation and how students can position themselves to develop a compelling narrative to increase their chances for admission. We will also discuss the importance of community service and how it can help a student to stand out from other applicants.
The presentation will be led by Ron Feuchs and Jackie Tepper, partners at Stand Out For College, LLC.
