I want to create a class in high school that helps students get ready for college and help them apply for different post-secondary education. I want to have a job coach come in and work with my students a few times a month. I want to provide a service where I provide meals for my students over the weekends if they need it. I want to find a safe and open home for my homeless students to live in. I want to show my students that they can get a job and/or go to college.
The vision statement for my future school’s counseling department will describe a program which will empower all students to reach their highest potential by using a comprehensive program that addresses academic, personal/social, and career goals. It will promote an environment to encourage personal inquiry and growth, social responsibility, and academic excellence.

Murray discusses how young children are much better at memorizing facts than adults are, to support his position that kids should be memorizing this core knowledge at a younger age (Murray 224). Murray believes that students need to learn more about science, history, art, music, and literature than they’re being taught now. His argument is that they need to be taught this information before college, so that in once they become a freshman they can immediately begin focusing on their intended major (Murray 225). As a college freshman at a liberal arts school, I can confidently say that my previous schooling has prepared me well for a liberal arts education. I am continuing to learn things in my freshman year that I believe will prepare me well for my future endeavors.
Homelessness has taken a toll in many people lives. My senior year in high school my family and I became homeless. I was suppose to be happy because I was graduating but all I could think about is what if my friends found out I am homeless.

I was going to school everyday putting a smile on my face like everything was fine but once school was over the depression kicked back in.
Youth homelessness in Canada is not a new phenomenal, it has become more and more severe over the past 20 years. “One third of homeless individuals on the streets are under the age of 25”(Cino, Rose). It is a significant social justice issue in Canada. Within our community people are increasingly aware of the sight of youth sleeping in parks, asking for money and sitting on sidewalks. Youth homelessness is caused by tragic life occurrences such as abuse, illness or unemployment, while many falsely assume homelessness is a choice.
Through my experience as a Peer Academic Leader, I was able to hold two counseling sessions with each student per semester to provide myself as a resource. I learned how to adapt to the individual needs of students to provide them the best education. Like students with a communication disorder, many of my students would shy away from activities or tasks because of obstacles. Through these experiences, I watched my students gain the confidence to participate in activities and excel in academics to become successful individuals. As a future Speech Language Pathologist, many qualities that I possess can be improved by furthering my education.
If you are educated in the right way in high school you should be prepared for what is to come in college. For me this is a tiny bit true because when you have McGee you are going to be prepared for any dead line that is coming and I learned in a hurry what deadline management was. Another thing that I learned in High School
Introduction The purpose of this paper is to assess the performance of first-generation college students. With the number of first-generation college students enrolling in universities rising, these students often have a struggle to transition into a university life with the lack of knowledge that their parents could not provide for them. College is a huge step for many families because they are sending their children off to get a higher education; therefore, support and motivation were added to the studies. These two components will be mentioned in this essay because many studies have shown that they can affect a student’s ability to do well in school. This happens because first-generation children grow up in an environment where they are
It was not just a place to socialize, but to get education and skills that would help me later on in life. On reaching third grade, I became familiar with the education levels and how one would graduate from one level. As I advanced, it became clear what I wanted to do in life. I vowed to work hard in school so that I would get better grades that would propel me into achieving my dreams. Also, I knew I had to get into a good college for all my dreams to be actualized.
The reason for this is people fail to realize that high school is way different than college. It is very important for a student to have an open mind for the drastic change their about to encounter in the next four years of their lives. They are both different levels of education that are expanding a student’s knowledge to fulfill their career path for their dream job. Although, there are both similar to one another that involve teaching students to learn both have many differences between each other, I prefer college more than high school based on my experiences. The

The President 's Leadership Academy is an opportunity for students who do not settle for the regular curriculum and aspire to become involved servant-leaders through experiential learning, workshops, and classes.

I am particularly interested in being a part of the PLA because of my joy for servant leadership. In my high school career I have assumed many leadership positions.

Because of the subjects I like it will be difficult to find a job that fits those goals. My goal in high school was to do my best, so that I can apply to many colleges. I wanted to meet the requirements for admission for as many schools as possible. This will give me more options for applying to different schools. On my application I will be able to talk about my community service through the school and Boy Scouts.
