The JCC of Mid-Westchester's Academic Center is offering two workshops to help teens get organized for the school year.
On Sunday, Sept. 23, from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., a Time Management Workshop will help students (and parents) start the school year off on the right foot by teaching them how to understand time. Through hands-on exercises, participants will learn to make time to juggle their busy schedules using time maps, school planners and electronic devices.
The following week on Sunday, September 30, from 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m., a Paper Management Workshop will teach participants successful paper management techniques for organizing binders, knapsacks, lockers and home.
Each workshop costs $25/attendee, or $40 for both workshops. Registration information is available at www.jccmw.org. The workshops will be taught by Larchmont resident Leslie Josel, principal of Order Out of Chaos.
Josel is a certified professional organizer specializing in students and adults with chronic disorganization. She received her Chronically Disorganized and Hoarding Specialist Certificates from the Institute of Challenging Disorganization and is a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers. She teaches organization and time management skills to middle and high schoolers throughout Westchester.
The JCC Academic Center is also offering a PSAT Boot Camp, Writing Skills and College Application Essay workshops, and SAT Prep this fall. For more information, contact Lisa Itzkowitz, Director, JCC Academic Center, 472-3300, x275, firstname.lastname@example.org.
