Workshops

  • STEM Scholarships: Finding Money for College
    This interactive workshop will teach parents how to effectively search for scholarships that will help pay for college. A search for internship opportunities will also be covered and a list of scholarship sites will be provided to workshop participants.
  • College Readiness Workshop
    Parents are invited to learn about what they can do now to help their daughter prepare for post-secondary education. Your involvement as a parent can make these tasks considerably easier. Learn how your daughter can earn college credit while still in high school, help her stay on track, and hear about updates to the college planning process. A CLC College Readiness Coordinator will be available to answer questions.
  • Transfer Pathways and Planning
    Transfer planning begins as early as junior high and high school for those who plan to attend the College of Lake County and transfer to a four year institution to earn a bachelor’s degree. Come learn about the transfer pathway opportunities offered at CLC, as well as about the transfer resources available at CLC, and how your student can use these resources to their advantage to achieve their ultimate educational goals.
  • Industry Panel Discussion
    Learn first-hand from women working in STEM fields what inspired them to pursue their careers, kept them motivated in college and continues to drive them. They will share their personal paths within their fields as well as any advice for today's students.
