Every Little bit Helps: Raise.me Can Help Fund College

 
Who doesn’t like to be rewarded for good behavior?  Some may see this as positive reinforcement. I call it winning. Some positive reinforcement makes you feel good inside, which is great – intrinsic value and all.  Then there’s the kind of positive reinforcement that comes with a tangible bonus – nothing wrong with that right?
I know I have preached to my oldest the need for her to put together a portfolio outside of her academics to not only make sure she’s a well-rounded person, but also to impress colleges.  Whenever she whines about the time commitment, either for studying or practicing, I remind her that she will reap the benefits later when she gets her college acceptance and scholarship letters.  However, she may not have to wait so long.  Guess what? Your budding scholar can collect scholarship money for all of their outstanding work in and out of school – right now!
Raise.me empowers students to earn “Micro-Scholarships”, as early as 9th grade, for their individual achievements. 
Your scholar can sign up and earn money for their involvement in/doing well on:
  • Sport, club, and other extracurricular activities
  • Standardized test scores, i.e. AP exams
  • Attending college events like summer programs and college fairs

Who knew?  Our teen seeing her hard work turn into dollars right before her eyes may have an impact on her believing me when I say that all of her hard work is worth something to someone other than herself.  Because at this point, in our teens life, tangible positive reinforcement trumps intrinsic any day.

 

 

Do you think tangible reinforcements help your teen better?
