A critical initiative of the IC3 Movement’s mission to bring counseling in every school, the IC3 Regional Forums are in-person events organized by the IC3 Regional Committees and bring together leadership and staff from high schools in local regions for a focused dialogue on the significance of career and college counseling as an integral function in schools. Hosted at local high schools, the IC3 Regional Forums enable access to learning, knowledge creation and sharing, networking within the community and with global universities for hundreds of schools that have limited resources for travel and training of their principals, teachers, and counselors.

Through the IC3 Regional Forums, IC3 Institute, Annual IC3 Conference, and IC3 Live, the IC3 Movement envisions that every high school globally will run a robust, well-resourced career and college counseling office.
