CAREER PATH - PODS
PODS is a fun new group project for high school students to participate in to explore future career paths! Groups of students will be working collaboratively to create, develop, research, plan, organize, recruit, coordinate, and lead others teens in their search for meaningful possible jobs. With the benefits of learning about career paths, students involved will be able to receive letters of reference or recommendation for character and achievement, volunteer hours and service learning opportunities.
In Freedom4U's Service Leadership Program, teens can gain important leadership skills of writing, speaking and organizing while leading other teens in a service area they care about. The service area can be a project or cause that is benevolent to other people, the culture, to an organization or the environment. We have programs in creative arts, life skills, leadership and service.
