Shining A Light On The Transition To College/Gap Year

April 16 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Get Informed. Get Connected. Get Resources.

Are you nervous about your child’s transition to college or gap year? Let us help support you and your teen through the process. Join JumpSpark, Atlanta’s Jewish teen initiative, and our community partners, for an evening of information sharing, resource collection and connection with fellow parents of seniors. Parents will leave with a toolkit of resources that will help guide them and their teens through the transition and help alleviate undue stress on their families.

Featuring a series of meaningful breakout sessions with experts in the field.

  • What to expect from your teen as they prepare to leave.
  • Tips on effective communication strategies with your child.
  • How to support your own and your child’s emotional wellbeing through the process.
  • Learn about ways that your child can engage Jewishly and with Israel in college or through a gap year.
  • How to connect with your child about the dangers of substance abuse.
  • Advice on simplifying your child’s move (including the all-important packing list).
