The science of purpose shows the mental and physical health benefits of aligning our lives with what matters most to us. Discover how purpose plays into the college planning experience, not only short term as a powerful strategy for admissions but long term for students well-being. Instead of leading our teens to play the Destination Admissions Game, we can encourage them to begin exploring how they might be able to use their talents to benefit the local and global community.
