Text, Talk, Set to Go is now closed.

Juniors and seniors can prepare to get Set to Go with our initial conversation, delivered to their small group (or with their parent/guardian) through a series of pre-programmed text messages. NEW: In light of school closures due to COVID-19, schools can now bring this activity to students remotely by following our modified organizing guides in the “Planning for Text, Talk, Set to Go in Your School” section below.

Here’s how it works:

Students gather in small groups of 3-4 people or with their parent/guardian. Using one cell phone per group (this can be done virtually through online technologies such as Zoom or Google Classrooms), text SETTOGO to 89800 to receive a series of text messages that guide you through a 45-minute conversation on getting prepared for the transition out of high school. The text messages include polling questions, discussion questions and social media interactions that help students start planning now for life transitions to career and college.

The student-parent/guardian track allows for these conversations to happen within the family and can be a great activity to do while everyone is at home. To join, the student and parents/guardians text SetToGo to 89800 and choose the family track.
