Ashburn, VA (PRWEB) September 03, 2013
A sluggish recovering economy, budget cuts, employment instabilities, and strained consumer spending have made an extensive impact on our children’s education. Schools can no longer count on the traditional candy and trinket fundraisers to help offset their reduced increasingly exhausted budgets. StudentPerch was created to serve as an innovative multi-purpose educational fundraiser tool with the primary goal of contributing to the educational essentials of our children.
StudentPerch provides the creative services, intuitive technology, and social strategy for proactive participation in live interactive college search and career services online. Our events are free for students and parents and include activities that traditional in-person events provide, such as college and career planning seminars and college process information. Since our events are online, we also provide branded virtual college booths with links to essential materials, videos about student life, sports, and tours, as well as shared video chats and private one-on-one chats with admissions, student ambassadors, financial services, and other representatives. We encourage student and parent participation in our events by funding donations, video and social experiences, giveaways, and school spirit contests. Our invaluable donations of up to 25% of profits to randomly chosen accredited K-12 schools following every college fair when a school’s students attend, appeals to all participants’ sense of social good. We also focus on key trending areas for student engagement and sustainability ensuring that StudentPerch is readily adaptable to student’s changing needs and wants. We create experiences by telling a never-ending higher education story with interactive components that begins with our younger (“K” in K-12) generations.
Long term expectations of higher paying jobs and careers are more realistically obtained through some form of higher education whether that is through college, on the job military service training, along with technical or specialty training. Even the most capable person needs to own the responsibility of staying educated to be productive and competitive. “Unrefined raw materials (no matter how valuable) are simply wasted potential," stated by Jason Nazar, Co-Founder and CEO of Docstoc and Forbes.com Contributor.
