Why: Colleges/employers/scholarships are no longer asking for references, they are searching for students online to see how they act on social media and making their decisions based on their first impressions. Do you know all of the different ways colleges will find your student’s online footprint? Do you know how many other people might look like your student and have a bad online reputation? This event will give you knowledge, a 6 month game plan and help your kids approach social media as a purpose, instead of a past time.

Our speaker travels the country teaching 30,000 students each year how to be positive on social media to shine online.
