Prepare financially for higher education.
Have a school counselor or someone from an employment center in your area discuss the opportunities for scholarships and financing available to students. Discuss the Perpetual Education Fund if it applies to your area. Encourage the youth to make a plan for how they will pay for school. This could include obtaining a job and saving for college, determining what they would need to do to qualify for a scholarship, or securing financial aid. If possible, give the youth time to practice filling out applications. Discuss how pursuing educational or professional goals will prepare youth for future responsibilities as parents and providers.
