    Powering Student Success: TeenLife’s Involvement with Educators, Counselors, and Consultants

    Posted by TeenLife


    At TeenLife, we believe in the power of connection and collaboration. Often, we hear stories of students who found their perfect summer program or gap year opportunity through a recommendation from their school counselor. This is no accident - TeenLife actively works with a vast network of high school counselors, educational consultants, and notable organizations like CounselMore, MaiaLearning, GuidedPath, and Clever. Our mission is to empower students through education, and we achieve this by maintaining a strong and consistent presence within the educational community, distributing our informative guides, and participating in various educator conferences.

    Engagement with School Counselors and Educational Consultants

    Our interaction with school counselors and educational consultants is a cornerstone of our work. Every month, our Counselor & Consultant newsletters reach nearly 10,000 educators. These newsletters serve as a conduit for our guides and updates on our virtual fairs. Moreover, our involvement with conferences such as the HECA, IECA, and NACAC allows us to continuously engage with educational consultants, sharing our mission and the opportunities we provide for students.

    Our partnership with the Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA) has been particularly beneficial. IECA, a leading association of educational consultants, offers expert advice on secondary school, therapeutic programs, college admission, and graduate school. Through our collaboration, we have been able to enhance the visibility of our professional members while broadening our reach through IECA's active promotion of our news, guides, and events.

    The Higher Education Consultants Association (HECA) is another significant association we proudly partner with. As a Business Partner of HECA, we interact closely with its members, providing free printed copies of the Guide to Summer Programs and participating in the annual HECA Conference.


    Empowering Education Together Our collaborations extend beyond conferences and newsletters. We've established partnerships with various organizations, all aiming to enhance the educational journey for students.
