After an intensive research session on career counseling in high schools, I realized that counselors are facing many significant issues. These include dealing with poverty in schools, bullying, and college readiness, as well as a host of others.
In response, I decided to create a toolkit, Art Chaperon, to help students, councilors, schools, and parents make better decisions when choosing a career path in the arts. Although many of my initial concepts previously existed in some form, I noticed that they lacked an awareness, and were not intended to address the issue as a whole. Thus, I created this site to serve that function. Think of it as a toolkit for toolkits.
