Do you have teens or parents who are looking for career advise but don’t want to use a book? Then EducationPlanner.org is the site for them. This great resource, provided by the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA), offers information for students, parents, and even high school counselors.
The section for students lets teens and middle-schoolers explore different career paths by taking simple assessment tests based on their interests and what classes they do well in. There is also a Self-Assessment section for students to learn what type of student they are, what their study habits are and what type of character they have.
For parents, EducationPlanner.org helps them tips on saving and paying for college, help with searching for scholarships and advice on filling out FAFSA.
And the section for counselors gives tips on hosting a student aid event and how to use EducationPlanner as a computer lab activity.
Be sure to share this great resource with your patrons!
