Destination→College Webinars Help Prepare For College

Your Teen For Parents and Ohio’s 529 Plan, CollegeAdvantage, have teamed up to offer Destination→College, an 8-week webinar series that will help guide parents through preparing for education after high school for their children.  

Like saving for your child’s higher education in Ohio’s 529 Plan, it’s never too early and never too late to start planning and preparing for their future post-secondary educational needs. So if you have a newborn or a high school student in your home, now is the perfect time to take advantage of the experts you have access to through Your Teen. Destination→College is a great line-up of topics and speakers to help you navigate the entire college process. Each webinar will help you figure out your game plan step-by-step.

The webinars are held at 7 p.m. EST every Tuesday, starting on March 8. A recording will be available for each of the eight sessions so if you miss one, you will still be able to access the valuable information shared in each webinar.
