Program Info: Drive In Workshops

TACAC Drive-In workshops are specifically designed to provide secondary school counselors with unique professional development knowledge.  These one-day workshops, hosted in a variety of locations across the state, aim to assist counselors in working with students throughout the college application process.  Workshop sessions can include the importance of demonstrating interest, tips for working with undocumented students, a new approach to writing letters of recommendation, NCAA updates, creating a college-going culture with first-generation students, and understanding financial aid packages/financial aid updates, among other topics still being developed.

Workshops are aimed at a variety of audiences, with some being created for new counselors with less than two years of experience, while others aim to provide new perspectives or updates for counselors with many years in the field.  In addition to gaining new knowledge, workshops also offer an opportunity to connect and network with colleagues from across the state to share best practices and information on various issues affecting college counselors and the students they serve. Counselors who work at community-based organizations and independent counselors are also welcome to attend.

Drive-In workshops are free, one day long, and are typically held on college campuses to allow for college tours after the workshop when possible.  Registration is available online and space is limited.  Please note that you do not have the be a TACAC member to attend!

Registration is currently open for the Austin-area College 101 Drive-In Workshop, which will be held Tuesday, September 13 starting at 9:00 AM at the Performing Arts Center in Austin ISD.  All counselors are invited to allow for in-depth best practice collaboration between college admission staff and high school counselors. Austin-area counselors, register now!
