Student 5.0 for High School Seniors

There’s a future out there. What will yours be?

Class of ’24 high school grads are thinking about their futures. And, there’s a lot to be thinking about.

What will happen next?

  • Straight to career? What career?
  • What learning and skills are needed?
  • Is college necessary? 2-year program? 4-year?
  • Apprenticeship?
  • Military?
  • Something else?

If you (or someone you know) would like help figuring this out, Student 5.0 is a no-cost program that can help.

Student 5.0 program participants decide and plan for what comes next based on what they want to do — their skills, their interests, and their aspirations. Student 5.0 program participants aren’t told what their futures will be. They design them!
