The College Resource Collaborative (CRC) is a Boston based group of independent college professionals committed to supporting teens, young adults, and their families develop the skills, confidence, and independence necessary to successfully transition into college and beyond.
Ask the right questions and help your teen make the right choices for college and beyond.
Join CRCBoston and the Brookline Teen Center for an evening with Michael Horn, author of Choosing College. Michael will dispel the myth that the best college for your teen is one ranked highest in the US News and World Report. He’ll share an alternate approach that centers on identifying students’ motivations. Michael will also offer tips about how to support teens with meaningful, productive, values- based conversations throughout the college process.
