New Counselor Institute

The Region 13 New Counselor Institute (NCI) is limited to 30 counselors with less than 3 years experience per cohort so that a collaborative, empowering, supportive, and effective model can be developed for counselors who are new to the profession. The NCI is a place where participants can seek guidance while collaborating and networking with other new counselors in the region. Through this empowering learning opportunity, counselors will not only leave with a multitude of concrete tools to build a successful program, but they will also leave feeling supported and inspired.

Through the Region 13 New Counselor Institute (NCI), we hope to increase retention in school counselors. Studies show increasing levels of burnout in school counselors due to the challenges and job demands associated with their profession. The institute will provide support to new counselors and help campuses/districts grow their counseling programs so that students and families are able to develop strong connections and relationships within their school communities.
