Mar 30, 2019 11:30am ‐ Mar 30, 2019 12:00pm


Description

Teenage girls at-risk for poor academic achievement and dropout due to limited vocational training and leadership opportunities were invited to participate in the VANTAGE (Vocational Awareness and Team-Based Girls Empowerment) program. The purpose of VANTAGE was to create a positive change in these young girls’ lives through vocational training, career exploration, leadership skill development, and mentorship from local women leaders. Outcome data from the program evaluation will be shared.

  • Professional counselors, students, and counselor educators will gain knowledge and insight into the development of VANTAGE, an evidence-based, grant-funded community program that addresses deficits in vocational identity, mentorship, and leadership of at-risk teenage girls.
  • Professional counselors, students, and counselor educators will learn about the successes and challenges of implementing VANTAGE, a community program for at-risk teenage girls.
  • Professional counselors, students, and counselor educators will learn about the data and outcomes collected from a program evaluation of the VANTAGE Program.
