Special Opportunity for Washington School Counselors

It’s your lucky day!

First, thank you for attending our presentation at the Washington School Counselors Association Conference. Thank you for sharing your info with us! We want to send you some free resources (see the bottom of this page). We also have a special opportunity for you! We want to get more schools in Maryland access to WhyTry, and we know that when a counselor uses our program, the school has a good probability of adopting it down the road.

So… here is the deal! Normally a single-user license for WhyTry is $599. This includes our introductory training and the full toolkit access. We have a special training scheduled for school counselors next month. If you register for that by the end of this month, we will let you purchase the program (including the training) for $175. using the discount code, we sent you in your email.

Student engagement instruction using multiple learning styles
