We partner with schools and youth organizations to offer customized programs in executive functioning and study skills, writing, and college readiness as well as test preparation and academic tutoring. Whether you’re interested in preparing for the next grade, filling in gaps, or just trying to head off learning loss during breaks in the academic calendar, EE can help.
The Learners’ Workshop focuses on the character traits, learning strategies, and academic habits needed for success in high school, college, and beyond. The lessons can be delivered as intensive one- to two-week programs, summer bridge courses, freshman orientations, or weekly “specials” over a semester. We’ll work with your organization to identify which topics and lessons are your top priority and draw on our extensive curriculum to tailor a workshop that meets the goals of your students.
Instructional methods include experiential learning activities, lectures, multimedia presentations, and short projects to encourage more efficient and successful learning. Students will receive a binder with accompanying worksheets, planner pages, and EE’s habits and strategies mini-textbook. Participants assess their current skills, build new ones, and leave the workshop with a game plan for their academic future.
Educational Endeavors staff can lead the course at your location or remotely. Or if you prefer, we can train your team members to deliver the program themselves. Ultimately, the goal of all EE workshops is to help students commit to putting all their habits and strategies into practice — and sticking with success.

Writer, speaker, and college writing instructor John Warner works with the Educational Endeavors team to develop curriculum for these programs based on lessons from his book “The Writer’s Practice: Building Confidence In Your Nonfiction Writing.” Students brainstorm, create, workshop, revise and edit a blog post that will be published on the web. In the process, they learn valuable skills that will help them with any school writing assignment.
There’s more to writing than the five-paragraph essay that many students experience in school. The Writer’s Practice workshop will open students’ eyes to the world that writers inhabit — where they consider their audience, work through a process, develop writerly habits and choose topics they’re passionate about. Instructors steer participants toward concepts and prompts that will help build their confidence and enjoyment as writers.
The seminar can be delivered as an intensive course over a few days, or offered at various times during the school year or summer. Educational Endeavors staff can lead the course at your location or remotely. As with all of EE’s enrichment programs, we will work with your organization to develop a curriculum that suits your students’ needs and schedule.

The transition to college can be difficult as young adults step into a world where no one oversees homework or breaks down assignments into manageable chunks. EE’s College Success Seminar will help familiarize students with the expectations of college and introduce them to a wide array of skills that will prepare them for the next stage of their education. If students have learned self-advocacy, organization, time management, and other executive functioning strategies before they arrive on campus, they are more likely to survive and thrive during freshman year.
