Description: Spend the evening with nationally-renowned experts discussing the future of your children. Speakers will present practical ideas to help families define success on their own terms and align their actions and decisions accordingly. Two high school students will also offer their perspectives on what success means to them, the pressures they face, and their coping strategies.
The event is hosted by Challenge Success, a part of the Stanford University School of Education. It is our goal to expand the narrow definition of "success," emphasizing well being and a variety of skills and abilities. We work with students, parents, and schools to carry out this mission.
