Shining a Light on the Transition to College or Gap Year: A workshop for parents of seniors

Are you nervous about your child’s transition to college or gap year? Let us help support you and your teen through the process. Join JumpSpark, Atlanta’s Jewish teen initiative, and our community partners for an evening of information sharing, resource collection and connection with fellow parents of seniors.

Participants will leave with a toolkit of resources that will help guide them and their teens through the transition and help alleviate undue stress on their families.


A Series of Meaningful Breakout Sessions with Experts in the Field

  • What to expect from your teen as they prepare to leave
  • Tips on effective communication strategies with your child
  • How to support your own and your child’s emotional wellbeing through the process
  • Learn about ways your child can engage Jewishly and with Israel in college or through a gap year
  • How to connect with your child about the dangers of substance abuse
  • Advice on simplifying your child’s move (including the all-important packing list)

This event will be in a private home in Sandy Springs. Registration opens in early March. For more information contact Amy Fox at
