What is the difference between LifePlan Labs and other programs like AVID? 2017-08-24T00:08:47+00:00

From a Google search:

AVID, which stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination, is a college readiness program designed to help students develop the skills they need to be successful in college. The program places special emphasis on growing writing, critical thinking, teamwork, organization and reading skills.

While LifePlan Labs does prepare students to get into college like AVID, LifePlan Labs extends beyond the AVID scope and also prepares them for how their choices in college planning affect the rest of their life, find and retain meaningful employment after college, and build independence, thus filling the gaps of day-to-day adult life through 64+ individual topics taught over four years. See LifePlan Labs topics here
