Visiting a workplace

  • Man on computer at work

Purpose

Learn about a career or field of study.

Description

Find parents of youth who would be able to teach the youth about their careers. Ask them to give the youth an overview of what types of jobs are available in that field, what qualifications are required for that type of career, and so on. If possible, let the youth tour the facility. Discuss how pursuing educational or professional goals will prepare youth for future responsibilities as parents and providers.
