Giving Back

International College Counselors is dedicated to giving back to the community. From PTSA partnerships and free seminars to counselor training and pro bono counseling, we are committed to the students and the communities in which we work.

PTSA Partnerships

Mandee Heller Adler of International College Counselors presents a check to the PTSA of an ICC student’s choice.

International College Counselors provides free informational seminars to students and parents at PTSA meetings and college fairs throughout the school year.

Pro Bono

An important part of the International College Counselors mission is to maximize the educational opportunities for students of all schools and backgrounds. Each year, International College Counselors provides free support to highly motivated / high potential students who are unable to pay for the services.

Free Seminars and Webinars

International College Counselors has provided free seminars to organizations in select areas of Florida, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, North Carolina, Ohio, Washington DC, Maryland, California and Virginia. Families from all over the U.S. and all over the world have also benefitted from ICC’s free webinars. If you are affiliated with a company that would like a dynamic and informative seminar or webinar, please do not hesitate to contact us.
