Adams State University Counselor Education Department hosted the 2018 regional training for the Colorado's School Counselor Corps Grant Program (SCCGP) on February 23.

SCCG funded districts and schools attend three in-person trainings each year of the grant. CDE partners with postsecondary institutions to host the trainings. These partnerships allow school counselors and administrators to visit campuses across the state. By visiting the campuses the counselors are better equipped to share campus and programs with students during career and college conversations.
