Cheat Sheet Series
Intro Session June 27, 2021
SSGP designed the Cheat Sheet Series as a risk free environment for parents to learn what their children need to be doing to succeed in high school.
This group provides value not only for parents of 9th graders who’re transitioning into that important predictor year, but parents of any high school student because there’s challenges and transitions during all 4 years.
We’re all weary of being in front of screens so we’ve designed each Cheat Sheet Series session to be a “live” online group (not an already videotaped class). We'll focus on vocabulary and concepts used in high school, and what students need to know to succeed. Often, parents aren't familiar with how their children's experience is different from the one they had themselves. We offer a live space so parents and families can ask questions in a non-judgy place.
Genevieve is a first generation University of Michigan graduate. Despite being a good high school student with a solid work ethic it was challenging to be successful without having a clear idea of what going to college meant in the classroom, in the dorm, and on campus. After working in Residence Life on two State University of New York campuses, and developing an HIV prevention program for young women at The Door-A Center for Alternatives (New York City) she realized how essential it is for young adults to be actively involved in their own education. Her OPTION PLAY tools are based on that realization.
