It’s not a new challenge, but the solution is. In this series, we will meet with educators to discuss how they have implemented Tallo in the classroom and through student organizations to help students develop their career pathways, create dynamic portfolios and connect with opportunities directly related to their career pathways.

Your Students' Futures Start Here

See how Tallo has been implemented in classrooms and student organizations around the country. 

In each session, educators will discuss how they have used Tallo to help their students develop college and career pathways.

You will leave our webinars with practical and realistic activities you can use in your next class or meeting with your students, and a better understanding of what Tallo can offer your students and program. You will receive a certificate of attendance for joining us.

If you are an educator interested in ideas for interesting, engaging, and impactful resources for your classroom, you don’t want to miss this series!
