Currently, Compass Counseling is undertaking a service learning initiative in conjunction with Sarvodaya in Sri Lanka (see my "About Me" and"Links" pages). Beginning in May we will begin schedulling 8 and 12 week group sessions for students and their families that focuses on cross cultural understanding and volunteerism in order to promote personal growth, leadership, communication and teamwork skills. This experience is an enormous benefit for those looking at studying abroad, particularly in th U.S. and Canada as this will be a focus of the academic expectations that students can expect when enrolling in academic programs in these countries. We will also offer college application assistance via reflective exercises that assist students in expressing the growth that they have experienced by being a part of this program and the amazing opportunities to work with communities in developing areas. Stay tuned for further details and promotions very soon. (March 1st, 2018)
