Give your teen a chance to win a mentorship experience with Steve Harvey



Giving teens the opportunity to excel is just one more way that you can support the next generation and build tomorrow’s leaders today. Nominate Now! for the Coca-Cola Pay It Forward Academy, plus a $5,000 scholarship. Every teen has a gift.
The true measure of a teen’s talent can’t always be captured on a paper test – that’s why Parents have to keep their eyes and ears open to help their teen find that talent to not only excel at, but also love and enjoy. Because after all, work isn’t work if you’re doing what you love. One of the biggest challenges college-bound seniors face is figuring out how to pay for school. Applying for scholarships should be one of the first steps in their search. However, scholarship myths continue to flourish and need to be dispelled.

Don’t count yourself out just because you are not the valedictorian, class president, or star athlete. There are scholarships available for many interests, backgrounds, and abilities. The bottom line is – APPLY — and, the more scholarships for which you apply, especially local and regional opportunities, the better your odds are to be selected.

Break the silence. Stop Domestic Violence

We can all take steps to stop domestic violence. If you or a loved one is trying to leave an abusive relationship, it's important to remember the person who is hurting you or your loved one is the person who needs to change. However, your abuser may be unable or unwilling change.

Q: What can I do to stop domestic violence?

Anyone can help stop domestic violence by taking these steps:

    Call the police if you see or hear evidence of domestic violence.
    Speak out publicly against domestic violence. For example, if you hear a joke about beating your spouse, let that person know you aren't ok with that kind of humor.
    Maintain a healthy, respectful romantic relationship as a model for your children and others.
    Refer your neighbor, co-worker, friend, or family member to a domestic violence outreach organization if you suspect he or she is being abused.
    Consider reaching out to your neighbor, co-worker, friend, or family member that you believe is being abusive by talking to him or her about your concerns.
    Educate others on domestic violence by inviting a speaker from your local domestic violence organization to present at your religious or professional organization, civic or volunteer group, workplace, or school.
    Encourage your neighborhood watch or block association to watch for domestic violence as well as burglaries and other crimes.
    Donate to domestic violence counseling programs and shelters.
    Be especially vigilant about domestic violence during the stressful holiday season.

Search For A College

There are many factors to consider when trying to find the right college for you. It can be an overwhelming decision when you start to look at all the different options you have for choosing a school. How do you know what is right for you?
A good way to make the best decision for you is to make a list of factors in order of importance. When you start looking at colleges, you can immediately discount the ones that don’t meet your criteria. For example, if finances are a main concern, you can immediately cross off schools that don’t meet your budget or those that do not offer enough financial assistance
While there is no absolute rule, we recommend to most students that they have two to three colleges in each of the three different flavors. This insures that you are reaching for your fullest potential while guaranteeing that you'll be accepted to some great colleges that you can choose to attend.

Here’s a key question to ask every college: How does the college rank in the major you want to study? Universities are stronger in some areas and weaker in others. While it may be too early for you to know whether you want to major in English or history, check out how strong the programs and professors are in the various fields you are considering. One indication of how much emphasis a university places on a major is to find out how many students are studying that major, how many courses are offered in the field and how many faculty members teach the courses associated with that major and others like it. This should give you an idea as to the size of the department and the range of courses. If you want a major in a narrow field, you might have to consider a larger university.
