Meetings will consist of a panel of professionals sharing: 

 

  • The necessary education and training requirements for a career in their field

  • What an average day/week is like 

  • What the main challenges are in their career

  • What makes them passionate about their career

 

Following the panel presentations, will be an open Q & A time between teens and panelists. Teens will have the opportunity to individually connect with panelists. 

 

Short surveys will be given to show strengths and interests. These survey results will reveal their matching careers. Optional future steps to continue discovery of a career direction.

 

Work site visits:

At the conclusion of the Career Path meeting, teens are able to indicate if they would like to join in on a future visit to a particular work site to further help them in their discovery of their career direction. At these work site visits, they can observe and participate in discussions leading to a deeper understanding of the particular career.

 

Small Groups:

As teens gather around a specific career type, they will have the option to join with other similar teens and have group meetings that are focused on learning more about the career. 

A business mentor from the career type will guide these meetings.

 

Volunteering, Internships and Work:

Interested teens will be encouraged to volunteer in their chosen career of interest. 

Interested teens will be guided towards seeking an internship and/or part-time work.
