Taylor @juliavtaylor, author of The Girls in Real Life Situations (G.I.R.L.S.) group curriculum (and many others!), speaker, doctoral student, and former high school counselor!

Why ASCA and Why Help School Counselors Spice Up Their Program With #SCCS15? Guest Post buy Jeff Reams - The Counseling Geek

Guest Post by Jeff Reams, The Counseling Geek



Anyone who has attended the ASCA National Conference can easily answer the first question. Those that have not - you are thoroughly missing out. The ASCA conference is three days of networking, learning from over 100 breakout sessions, and getting encouraged by top keynote speakers (like Michelle Obama!).

How cool is it? It actually afflicts those who attend with PADS after leaving!


Sadly, there are some school counselors that have never attended and one of the main reasons is because there is a lack of funding. That is why we are back for another year of the School Counselor Community Scholarship (#SCCS15). We have upped our donation/fundraising goal from last year to 5 full registration scholarships ($1, 750) to give to some school counselors in need!

The recipients of last year's scholarships really enjoyed their time at the conference:

Bridget Helms of Jane Ball Elementary School in Cedar Lake, IN
Katie Powers, Graduate student at Brandman University in San Diego, CA

A partial scholarship ($175) is being awarded to:
Karon Parrish of Star City Middle School in Star City, AR

So now what? Now we need you! If each reader decided to donate only $5 - which is less than that triple hot sugar free double shot caramel frappuccino you just ordered - we would blow our goal out of the water! So I challenge you to donate $2, $5, $20, or $100+ to help school counselors out there attend ASCA 2015 in Phoenix, AZ.


The scholarship applications will be open early in the new year - please check back for links or visit www.thecounselinggeek.com.
