Why 5 Major Steps?
Hi! I'm LeAnn Gregory creator of the Five Major Steps Program. I have spent the last 25 years mentoring college students with the campus ministry CRU. I have met some amazing kids, but I have also noticed an alarming trend. Many students are changing their college major with astonishing frequency and, as a result, amassing paralyzing debt. In fact, a few of these students ended up living in our basement because they couldn't afford an apartment after making their student loan payments each month!
I knew there had to be a way to better prepare students, before they came to college, to make wise and informed decisions about their future. So, I set out to write a program that would help teens better understand themselves, their career options, job market trends, and the financial realities of a college education.
Having teens of my own who are headed to college made me even more motivated to research the causes and solutions to the problem I saw in higher education. I learned that 75% of college students change their major (some up to 3 times) and as a result, only 19% of students nationwide graduate college in 4 years, most take 6 (if they graduate at all). This is costing families an extra $25,000-$80,000. With four-year degrees already over $100,000 at most public colleges, this is simply not realistic for most middle-class families.
I have taught my 5 Major Steps Program to teens in live1 day workshops, in online group classes, and to schools. I also equip parents to lead their students through the 5 Steps and on to a successful future. Whether you have kids in private school, public school or homeschool, I want to help you be your student's best guidance counselor!
