Set to Go
The Jed Foundation (JED)
Set to Go is a program from JED to help high school students prepare for the transition to college and to life after high school. Research with first-year college students shows most wish they were better prepared – emotionally – for the transition from high school to college. This preparation should begin in high school and Set to Go was created to help.
Emotional preparedness for life after high school involves five key areas of knowledge and skill development: putting college in perspective; basic life skills; social and emotional skills; mental health and substance abuse literacy; and the transition to college life.
