Encourage

Together, we’re helping your Polar Bear into the big world.

Our Approach

Families are one of our greatest allies in preparing students for life after Bowdoin.
Encourage your student to engage with Career Planning early to explore career options and prepare for the career they want.

Support Your Student

Understand our approach so that you can be a better resource for career advice.
