Alternatives to College Fair Expands to New York City
Prepare To Bloom, Lilley Consulting and Lighthouse Guidance are excited to announce the expansion of the Alternative to College Fair (ALT Fair) to the East Coast. September 9th and 10th, 2022 in New York City
ALT Fair founder Shayna Abraham, MA, CEP said. “I have been asked for years to to bring the ALT Fair east and New York City is the perfect spot.” This Spring, ALT Fair was held in Walnut Creek with over 40 participating transition options and many high school students and recent grads exploring post-college options. September 9th is a closed networking event with a free fair even on the 10th. The fair event is open to high school seniors, parents, and young adults who were trying to determine a plan, whether they left post-secondary institutions or never left. One young adult woman shared, “I’m so glad I came to this! I have several new ideas for what I want to do and where I want to go. Thank you for hosting this event!” While Meristem reported, that one visitor to their table, was a family who had inquired online and they were able to have an informal interview at the event.
The ALT Fair is a one-of-a-kind event bringing programs that specialize in different pathways for families to follow, post-high school. Expanding this event to twice each year on both coasts allows even more families to learn about the less explored young adult options. The event is open to all families and professionals.
For any programs interested in being a vendor please email email@example.com for additional information. We are looking for vendors who offer a range of post-secondary options for adolescents and young adults.
