Tools Students Learn In This Program

Career Insight: Our program helps students explore potential careers using advanced AI and online resources. A lack of career exploration could lead to students entering a field they later find unfulfilling.

Conversation bubbles

College major Selection: We guide students in linking their passions to potential college majors. Without this guidance, they may select a major that doesn't align with their future career goals, causing potential course corrections later on.

Can I buy the "two student" plan and invite a friend from school?

Each student should get their own "one student" plan so they can take part in all of the great resources. They will get a workbook, Zoom access, email followups, and they can take part in the already discounted price. Also each of the students can select the week they want to participate in so they can choose the same week to do the program together.

Can I buy the family plan and invite a friend?

The family plan is designed for one household to bring all of their kids/students and have one (or both) of the parents attend the event to learn along the way.

What are the prerequisites for this program?

High school students grades 9-12. No previous programming skills required. A desire to learn, and an interest in AI is helpful.

How long do I need to devote to this? My family is really busy…not sure if I can complete this?

The total time investment is about 2 hours per day. Students join online from anywhere and can participate from a laptop.

Where is the summit located?

Each day students log in online via Zoom to participate for 2+ hours. They can be at home but must be in a quiet room where they can concentrate and get some work done. There is no physical venue and no travel expenses or traffic.

How long do I have access to the event content?

Students who participate in the whole event can then access the recordings for 30 days after the event as a reference.

What is your refund policy?

We guarantee your student and family will find this program useful or your money back. If your student attends the whole event (each day), participates in all the activities, completes all of the homework, and still isn't satisfied with the results, simply contact SmartSocial within a week of finishing the program, turn in your materials, and we will issue you a full refund.

Is the program recorded for us to watch later?

Yes! You must commit and show up to all of the sessions. If you miss one of the sessions, you may reach out to the SmartSocial team and we will send you a recording of that particular session that you can watch anytime in the next week. If you attend all of the sessions we will send you a replay link so you may reference them for up to 30 days.

Can I watch it with my camera off.

Sorry, you must have your camera on to participate. We do this so we can prep each student for the future when they interview. This is also a safety measure so we know who's viewing each session.

What is the dress code?

Casual dress code is acceptable. Please ensure your laptop is located on a stable desk and your background is appropriate. Make sure you are sitting in a comfortable chair and use headphones if there is background noise.
