Naviance: Family Connection
Here at YWLA Arnold, we use Naviance Family Connection for all our college prep communications. Each high school student is given an account and has target grade level college readiness goals they are encouraged to complete each school year.
The Career Exploration tool is helping students picture their future. The career planning and assessment tools in Naviance allow students to realize their strengths, goals, knowledge, values, and interests in future careers which will help them work toward a path that is inspiring to them prior to high school graduation.
By matching students to colleges based on students’ interests and goals, and comparing admissions rates at students’ top college choices, the Naviance college planning tools allow students and families to make informed decisions. Naviance helps students find their best-fit higher education institution.
Naviance helps high school students:
- Connect interests to career fields
- Identify best-fit careers
- Plan for life after high school
- Understand college possibilities
- Explore high school specific college admissions stats
- Match to best-fit colleges
- Identify ideal college majors

X2VOL: Student Volunteer Service Hours
Community Service is an important part of personal growth, as well as something that helps a student provide a holistic application to colleges. YWLA is tracking all hours electronically using x2VOL. x2VOL by intelliVOL is an award-winning tracking and reporting platform for student service hours that is used here at YWLA to customize service goals, centralize service hours and provide diverse service opportunities.
Students gain access to their x2VOL accounts through their Naviance Accounts. For detailed information about individual club or organization service hours, students need to speak directly to their club sponsor.
It is a requirement of the Young Women’s Leadership Academy at Arnold that in order to graduate each student must earn a minimum of 400 hours of community service by the last Friday in April of their senior year. Each student has a minimum requirement of obtaining 100 hours of service each academic year (from 9th -12th grade) to help them reach their minimum of 400 hours by graduation.
Service opportunities are posted on x2VOL and in the College Bound Office. Students should check regularly for opportunities.
Only 50%, or 50 out of 100 hours, can be earned through school-sponsored activities (festivals, grounds beautification, etc.) each academic year (from 9th -12th grade).
