Student Launch Pad has partnered with Dale Carnegie of Georgia to offer a new college preparation and leadership summer camp for high school students in Atlanta, Georgia.

This camp will give teenagers the skills they need to reach their goals and live up to their full potential at school, home, and work.

Student Launch Pad has partnered with Dale Carnegie of Georgia to offer a new college preparation and leadership summer camp for high school students. This five-day camp combines the proven Dale Carnegie training with Student Launch Pad’s college preparation, major selection, and career guidance program.

The camp is recommended for high school students and will be held June 1-5, 2015 from 9 am to 4 pm at the Dale Carnegie of Georgia office in Atlanta, Georgia.

High school students are on the cusp of a critical transition period. Many are stuck in the unknowns of their future, lacking clarity and confidence in their unique strengths and passions.

Using three assessment tests and multiple interactive exercises, students will discover their passions, values, and strengths to select their best career, college, and major. For students who plan to attend college, they will begin working on the college selection, application, and essay writing process.

By the end of the camp, students will:

  •     Identify the best college, major, and career for them
  •     Begin the college application and essay process
  •     Learn how to present themselves naturally and easily in an interview
  •     Write a resume that will get them noticed

Today, the world is more complex, competitive, and demanding than ever before. Students often need to balance school, work, and relationships while at the same time working and planning for their future.

Through this camp, students develop skills that last a lifetime:

  •     Build self-confidence and leadership skills
  •     Enhance communication and speaking skills
  •     Learn to cope with the pressure and stress that they face

Through this camp, students avoid being one of the 50% of college students who change their major three times and take longer than 6 years to graduate (source). As a result, they can save an extra $37,000 in tuition by graduating on time.

By the end of the camp, students will have created a 50-page personalized portfolio that includes: assessment results, resume and interview preparation packets, and a college essay and application manual.

Wendy Johnson, President of Dale Carnegie of Georgia, says, “We are very excited about the partnership between Dale Carnegie of Georgia and Student Launch Pad. This camp will give teenagers the skills they need to reach their goals and live up to their full potential at school, home, and work.”
