ChatterHigh is announcing the launch of the ‘home version’ of its school-based college and career exploration activity, optimized for use by families and independent college counsellors. The new platform, ChatterHigh.io, provides unlimited access to its informative quizzes. The goal is to engage teens in exploring their futures, from home.
“Even pre-COVID-19, teens generally lacked awareness of what careers exist or even the names of colleges and universities outside their immediate area. In the current environment, lack of access to their guidance office or college presenters will only exacerbate the problem. This activity is designed to fill that ‘information gap’ and build student confidence. Our goal is to help families have more meaningful conversations about life after high school.”
Lee Taal, Founder and CEO, ChatterHigh
With a shift in education to home learning, ChatterHigh recognizes that parents are likely facing increased pressure to help their teens explore their post-secondary and career options. The research-proven exploration activity “Chatterhigh.com” has become a staple in career education courses across North America, with teachers using it throughout the semester to broaden students’ awareness of college and career possibilities, and to identify their passions. As the ‘home version’, ChatterHigh.io is a self-paced activity that will unlock guiding reports in only a few hours on any device.
“Navigating conversations with teenagers about their future plans is never easy. ChatterHigh.io is a bridge-builder between parent and teen. It creates great conversations about values, hopes, and possibilities.”
