Never Too Early to Start College and Career Conversation, American Student Assistance Expands Mission to Help Students Make Informed Choices About Their Futures

NEC member American Student Assistance (ASA) recently announced that they have expanded the organization’s mission to include “engaging students as early as middle school to help them make informed choices about their college and career options.” In making the announcement, ASA explained that the shift is grounded in the belief that exploring education and career goals at an earlier age can help students develop a clearer plan for their futures that lessens the financial burden of postsecondary education and increase their chances of job satisfaction and success.

President and CEO of American Student Assistance Jean Eddy said, “ASA is committed to helping kids know themselves, know their options, and make informed choices to achieve their education and career goals – especially as our workforce evolves. I’m proud to lead an organization that has been on the side of students for more than half a century, and I’m eager to expand our work to reach students at an earlier age so they can discover, explore, and experience all of the possibilities available to them and find what truly ignites their passion.”

The New England Council commends American Student Assistance for their commitment to helping students achieve their education and career goals.  Read more on the American Student Assistance Website.
