“Counseling resources in schools are scarce and sometimes completely unavailable,” says.Venkates Swaminathan, co-founder and CEO of LifeLaunchr. “College is a major investment for students and families. TeenLife Coach, using LifeLaunchr’s tools and services and TeenLife’s extensive database of summer, gap and college listings, fills an important need for families all across the country.”
Marie Schwartz, founder and CEO of TeenLife, understands how stressful and overwhelming it is to prepare children for college and life beyond school. “Most schools don’t discuss college and post-secondary planning until spring of junior year” she says. “Being able to speak to someone as early as 9th grade and get affordable advice about career exploration and skill building activities in time to take advantage of them is a wonderful complement to our platform.”
LifeLaunchr offers expert, personalized college admissions coaching. LifeLaunchr helps parents and their teens find and get into the best-fit college for them and afford it. College is the most expensive investment many families will make other than the home they own, and the average family can spend $120,000 or more on a four-year education for a child, with some spending as much as $280,000. So getting expert coaching has now become mainstream, as a result of the growing complexity of the process. Our coaching has helped students get into ivy league universities, top state schools, liberal arts colleges, and also engineering, pre-med, nursing, and performing arts programs The company won the EdTech Digest Cool Tools Award in 2018 and was a finalist again in 2019.
