Tomorrow of Junior Achievement USA (https://www.juniorachievement.org/web/ja-usa/tomorrowis a resource filled, easy access online portal that has been developed in order to deliver JA programming.

Individual Coaching  
During this time of social distancing and NTI/remote learning, NaviGo’s support of our students, families, and school partners continues in a virtual capacity. Students in need of one-on-one college and career planning assistance can contact us for remote NaviGo Coaching sessions. Our coaches are ready to help your student!

Online Resources  
We have started a new blog www.navigoprep.com/navigating-our-future and welcome guest bloggers and topic ideas to support our students and parents. In addition, we are building an online resource collection covering topics from how to talk with your students about anxiety and metacognitive strategies to cope during the current crisis, to free industry career talks, to external scholarship searches for college. We will be posting them on our website 

Business Engagement  
While business may not be “as usual,” business partners looking to support students’ work-based learning experiences, co-ops, and internships during the summer or during the 2020-2021 school year can connect with us. Business partners who are interested in connecting with students during this time of social distancing can contact us to set up virtual tours and industry discussions with students.  

NTI Assistance  
We are offering additional guidance to our NaviGo In-School Coaching partners with the option of non-traditional instruction (NTI) plans to keep their students moving forward with their post-secondary planning. Additionally, we are communicating with our YouScience partner schools to support them with relevant NTI connected to their students’ findings.   

NaviGo STAR  
NaviGo STAR- Supporting Transition, Access and Retention is a program we’ve developed to offset summer “melt”. Summer “melt” describes the phenomenon when seemingly college-intending students fail to enroll anywhere the fall after high school graduation. These college-intending students have typically applied to college, completed the FAFSA application, applied for financial aid and paid deposits to secure a spot at their intended institution. A student is considered to have “melted” if he or she planned to go but failed to show up to any college the fall following high school graduation. Summer melt rates range from 10 percent to 44%.
