This thesis project aims to help the AdviseAZ program reach out, guide, and prepare students for college by setting up a podcast to help answer questions and doubts high school students might have about college. A podcast like this would also help school counselors by relieving them of having to give out repetitive information about college, therefore opening time in their schedule to meet with students for in depth help. The podcast will provide episodes with information about college preparation and advice from college students and college representatives. The AdviseAZ podcast will help its partnered high school students between grades 9 through 12. The podcast will be new for AdviseAZ because as a program they have not explored this service idea for the students. It will be framed to be successful using the Bolman and Deal framework guidelines. These frames will allow the AdviseAZ podcast to prosper in a new way. Bolman and Deal's four-frame model has been a transforming business leadership. They use a multidisciplinary approach to management and provide tools for navigating the organization in a terrible circumstance. Organizations can see which of the four frames could draw to their needs for a solution or change.
