Learn about possible career options and make plans to pursue them.
Ask youth what careers they are interested in, and consider inviting ward members in various careers to share what they do and how to get involved in that field. Consider providing a career interest survey to youth to help them determine possible careers that suit them. You could also sponsor or visit a local job fair to introduce the youth to possible jobs and careers. Encourage the youth to prepare questions before the fair. Discuss how pursuing educational or professional goals will prepare youth for future responsibilities as parents and providers.
