ALT Fair NYC Welcomes Professionals + College Counselors | September
The inaugural East Coast ‘Alternative to College Fair,’ commonly known as the ALT Fair, is taking place at The Riverside Church in New York City, on September 10, 2022, from 12-3 pm. In attendance will be school counselors, independent Education and Therapeutic Consultants, parents, high school seniors, and young adults who are trying to figure out a plan. Founded seven years ago in the Bay Area, The ALT Fair is for students deciding to pursue a post-secondary institution, or who have attempted college or university and stepped away, or did not attend. The ALT fair is intentionally limited to 40 local and national programs and opportunities to provide an opportunity to connect for all in attendance.
Alternative-to-college options that have therapeutic support are becoming a necessary option for a growing number of young adults. The Journal of Adolescent Health (jahonline.org/) reported in April that 48% of the Young Adults surveyed reported mental health symptoms in their April 2022 report. “The programs in attendance at this NYC fair are only a fraction of what is available for young adults who are looking to get creative with their post-high school life,” said Joanna Lilley, MA, co-organizer of the ALT Fair.
To attend the RSVP-only networking event as a referring professional or school counselor, on Friday, September 9th, 2022 or to become an exhibitor you must register at https://www.collegealternative.org/alt-fair.
