About the 5-day program
Global Academy of Technology in collaboration with VTU and

    holistic development of students.

    professionals.

Why attend this program?
College counselors, mentors and teachers face unique
challenges in helping their students cope well with the
pressures of adolescent years. Professionals working with
college students need no introduction to how our students
are affected by modern technology, easy and constant access
to internet, dating and gaming sites, the influence of media
and changing socio-cultural perspective of today’s youth.
These issues also place demands on counselors, mentors and
teachers to constantly improve their approach in helping
students. This is a unique opportunity for professionals
working with college students to upgrade their knowledge,
understand standard practices, and interact with experts and
build their professional network. The program is particularly
geared towards helping college counselors, mentors, and
teachers improve technical knowledge and hone skills
required to help today’s youth.

Program objectives:
The object of the program is to help participants:

  • Learn skills and techniques to address the most
    common issues encountered by college counselors.
  • Equip with knowledge, skills and appropriate attitude
    to help students.
  • Gain a higher level of understanding of normal
    adolescent behavior.
  • Gain information on mental health issues among
    students.
