The program is open to all high school sophomores and juniors. Tuition is $195 and applications are due March 18, 2022.

More information on the program from director Randy S. Groomes:

"Participants get to preview 'college life' by staying in a UGA residence hall, eating in the university’s award-winning dining halls, and attending a variety of instructional programs. The evenings are filled with fun outings, entertaining activities, and time to enjoy the camaraderie of fellow APB participants. Students will often create lifelong friendships and gain a competitive advantage for college by acquiring the networking skills for internships and career advancement."

About this event

The "Game of Life" allows teens and twenty-somethings the ability to customize their experience by choosing topics according to their interests and skill level. "Game of Life" stations include topics such as:

  • You're Hired: Tips for Getting a Job
  • Banking, Taxes, & You
  • Car Care; Navigating Under the Hood
  • Talk the Talk; How to Communicate Without Being Face to Face and much more!

Participants will join in on games and activities filled with everyday tips and skills that allow them to prepare for real-life scenarios.

Students walk away with the knowledge and confidence needed on their journey towards adulthood, and YOU can rest easy that your student will be more prepared for what's ahead.

Dinner will be provided from 5:00-5:30 pm. Each student will take home a BMore Learning Game of Life Certificate and a parent resource for ongoing conversations.
