Teens are thinking about the future. Sometimes the choices can be overwhelming. Is your teen confused about his career path? Meredith Curtis presents a Christ-centered approach to making decisions.
God has a plan for your teen's life. It is a good plan. The author lays out a plan for teens to discover the Lord's call and purpose for their life. Then we're off on a journey of career exploration.
Our adventure includes:
Interview people about their careers
Host a career panal
Links to free online skills, interests, and values assessments with suggested careers
Write a Life Mission Statement
Gain insight and experience through ministry
Once we have a good list of potential careers, it's time to research them further with the Occupational Outlook Handbook to learn more about the work involved, education required, workplace, salary, and growth forecast for the years ahead. Updated each year by the federal government, the Occupational Outlook Handbook is a free online resource.
As part of our journey, we look at the college question. While college is necessary for many careers, it is not the only option. This manual helps teens make the college decision with their parents. If your teen does choose the collge path, there is a clear roadway laid out to visit colleges, apply, and investigate financial options.
Teens and parents who have used this manual report that it is extremely helpful.
If you are looking for a Christ-centered approach to choosing a career, this book is what you need.
