  • Developing and updating the online “Toolkits” for High School, College Admission, Transfer and Independent Counselors
  • Implementing and promoting the WACAC Leadership Development Institute (LDI)
  • Training and supporting public school counselors’ efforts to increase college-going rates through the District Directions program.
  • Providing College Admissions professionals with less than 2 years of experience with training, mentoring and networking at our Summer Admission Institute.
