Transitioning from high school to university or college often presents students with a new set of challenges as they find themselves in an unfamiliar environment. Successfully adapting to their new situation requires a measure of maturity and flexibility, which is where ENF comes in. In order to instill in our scholars the confidence and ambition they need to take on life’s challenges, ENF provides academic counseling that gives scholars the right foundation to succeed academically and achieve their professional and personal goals.
Academic counseling sessions involve constructive and open dialogue between the scholars and ENF’s team of guidance specialists who help students enhance their planning, learning, time management and personal development skills. ENF's guidance counselors also assist scholars how to rationally face academic obstacles and other pressures.
Through counseling, scholars develop their academic, cultural, psychological and social skills by understanding how to benefit from ENF and the resources available at their academic institutes, as well as by learning the importance of asking questions in order to find the answers they need.
During the academic counseling sessions, counselors review the scholars’ progress; show them how to independently identify challenges and tackle them; and motivate them to persevere and strive for excellence. These sessions have proven to be highly successful in enabling scholars to unlock and tap into their inherent talents, strengthening their relationships with ENF's team members, who work hard to give these youth a more positive outlook on life and show them that with optimism, open-mindedness, commitment and hard work, they can face anything that comes their way.
