This week the Gap, Inc. and the Pearson Foundation, along with the San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) released a free open source version of Plan Ahead; a semester-long high school course that helps prepare students for college and careers. Plan Ahead enables students to map out and achieve their academic, personal, and career goals, giving them the ability to make informed decisions about what they want to accomplish in the future.
Plan Ahead was first launched in the fall of 2010 by Gap Inc. and the Pearson Foundation, in partnership with SFUSD and Hirsch & Associates, and since then more than 15,000 students have taken Plan Ahead with proven results. A multi-year evaluation of the curriculum, by the TCC Group shows that students who have completed Plan Ahead demonstrate changes in attitude and knowledge toward education and careers.
