Resources for School Counselors

Free Presentations

Due to school closures related to COVID-19, we have made videos of our college, career, and financial literacy presentations for your students to access from home.

SOS counselors are available to conduct free presentations on a variety of topics throughout the state of Tennessee. Thousands of K-12 students and parents benefit each year from these informative sessions, which can be customized to address the needs of specific grade levels or interest groups, by helping to demystify the college planning process.

Our calendars do fill up quickly and availability is on a first-come first-served basis. Contact your area representative as far in advance as possible to schedule a presentation.

Faculty and Staff Training for Career Education

The Tennessee College and Career Planning System Powered by Kuder provides students with a lifelong portfolio including career, interest, and skills assessments. The SOS staff is available to educators across the state of Tennessee to conduct in-depth training for educators on how to administer these FREE assessments to students, interpret and utilize the results, and report statistical data for administrative purposes such as grant proposals and gap analyses.

Some of our most successful trainings have been held:

  • on in-service days
  • at system and district-wide meetings and events
  • during professional development functions
  • in conjunction with professional association conferences
  • one-on-one or in small groups at individual schools
We will work with you to plan a time that best suits your needs. Call today to schedule a training.

Free College Planning Materials

Along with presenting at your school, SOS provides helpful material consistent with each grade. Additional copies of these materials and other useful college planning resources may be ordered (or downloaded here) for Tennessee students by contacting your Student Outreach Services representative.
