College-bound: Free seminar designed to help parents guide children




      LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Baffled by how to guide your child on a path to college or vocational school? The University of Louisville/Yearlings Club discussion series is offering a free, public seminar intended as a road map.

    “Parenting 101: Preparing Your Students for Entry into College” will run from 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. May 15 at the Yearlings Club, 4309 W. Broadway. The sessions are geared to relatives and parents, particularly those with children in Title I schools that have supplemental funding to help students prepare for college and careers.

    A high school counselor, a college adviser, parents and community representatives will talk about required curriculum for college-bound students, timing for admission preparations and school and community resources that can assist. Speakers will discuss ways to help students from eighth grade through their senior year of high school.

    The UofL College of Arts and Sciences’ international, diversity and engagement programs office offers a monthly discussion series in partnership with the Yearlings Club. The series seeks to bring faculty members and the public together to discuss issues, share expertise and forge common bonds.

    The Yearlings Club Inc. was established in 1951 and its members include representatives from corporate, government and private organizations. The club is devoted to promoting civic responsibility, community service and leadership development.
