“eGuidance” provides counseling services for students in an eLearning world

Bridges.com Inc., a provider of career and educational planning solutions, and Peterson’s, a provider of postsecondary educational information, have teamed up to launch the eGuidanceCenter. This new web-based guidance resource was created to help schools become more successful with their career and educational development programs, to involve parents directly in their children’s educational future, and to excite students by helping them plan their future using the resources of the internet. The initial rollout of the service consists of 100 select “leader schools.” “Continual feedback from these leader schools will assist our companies in ensuring the eGuidanceCenter is the tool of choice for career educators and guidance counselors,” said Doug Manning, chief executive officer of Bridges.com. Leader schools also will provide local leadership to other high schools and will be available as a reference for new eGuidanceCenter clients. Leader school parents will receive access to age-appropriate, self-directed online activities, developed by counselors, to guide their children’s use of the center.
