NOTICE OF TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF ASA EDUCATION AND CAREER PLANNING CENTERS
ASA is taking preventative measures in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Out of an abundance of caution, ASA has taken actions to ensure all ASA associates, as well as clients and partners, remain safe and healthy.
The ASA Planning Centers and satellite offices are closed to the public until further notice.
During this closure, ASA’s Education Advisors remain available via telephone and email support, and we urge students and their families to refrain from traveling to our centers for the time being. Thank you for your understanding.
HOW WE REACH YOUNG PEOPLE
To help high school students navigate the uncertainties of today, and prepare them for the return to the new normal next school year, ASA has produced a series of webinars that help address the common areas of uncertainty for both students and families. Each webinar provides opportunity to obtain more information through research of webpages, completion of activity forms, or through contacting ASA’s Call Center Services.
Webinar 1: Apprenticeships & Internships – This webinar, intended for both grades 11 & 12, takes a look into preparation for applying for these opportunities through the lens of resumes and interviews & concludes with a review of resources to search for these opportunities digitally.
Webinar 2: Best Fit: Weighing Award Letters & Other Factors – This webinar, intended for grade 12 students choosing between college acceptances, analyzes the award letter process, discusses several factors that come into play when choosing a college, and suggests strategies to make the most informed decision before sending your deposit.
Webinar 3: Grade 11 Webinar – This webinar summarizes the process of searching and discussing post-secondary options students may be choosing from. This addresses important topics such as college, career, military, trade schools, self-care, and the many conversations that should be had throughout the process.
All links to the resources mentioned in the above webinars can be found in our consolidated resource list.
