Text, Talk, Set to Go

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. Text, Talk, Set to Go works well as an in-person or virtual activity (download our organizing toolkits below for more information).

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 833-440-2220 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 833-440-2220 and choose the family track.
