iDream Lab Boutique Recruitment Tour is not a traditional recruitment program, where you often don’t have the opportunity to make a meaningful connection with the right students. It is a transformative learning experience for students.

We work closely with each participating institution and high school to design a dynamic program of interactive workshops delivered by experienced international educators. Our vision is to bring the amazing world of educational opportunities to students in an engaging and memorable way.

Workshops range from sessions on relevant college prep topics to admission strategies, highlights of academic areas, exploration of essential college skills, and more philosophical discussions.

A few recent examples: "Emotional Intelligence", “Writing an Essay”, “Studying Applied Science”, “Design Thinking”, “Business and Entrepreneurship”, “Choosing a Major”.
