This session will provide participants with the opportunity to explore "YouCanGo!" and "BigFuture" - new, free online college planning resources created collaboratively by The Education Conservancy and the College Board. Participants will be presented with research about student needs, wants, and online/social trends, and learn how these sites will help counselors and educators guide students through meaningful self-exploration as part of the college search process and college planning journey. Strategies for incorporating these sites into the counseling toolbox and best practices will be shared on how to create a college going culture at their schools.
