What's Next For Me? event logo
NFA’s 2nd annual What’s Next for Me? event aims to ensure that every 12th grade student identifies a post-secondary plan and takes action steps towards that plan early on in their senior year. In association with the national American College Application Campaign (ACAC) and the Connecticut College Access & Advising Network (CCAN), our What’s Next For Me? Campaign gives students the opportunity to take an important action step toward achieving their goals.
Inclusive of all members of the senior class, regardless of post-secondary goals, What’s Next for Me? provides students with designated time and resources to take action toward their future plans. The goal of the day is that each 12th grade student will have completed tasks associated with their chosen path, which can include submitting a college application, meeting with potential employers, working on a resume, and much more. Many seniors find it difficult to set aside uninterrupted time to work on these tasks and What’s Next For Me? addresses this challenge!
