What kinds of jobs or careers can I imagine for myself?
(For example: working outdoors, with my hands, with children, industry/trades,
IT, healthcare, first responder, retail, restaurant, STEM [science, technology,
engineering, and math fields], business, agriculture, military, recreation, teaching,
music industry, graphic design, etc.)
What level of education and training do I need for the career I want?
(For example: high school diploma, 2-year associate degree, 4-year college degree, military training,
apprenticeship, graduate or professional school, etc.)
As I think about my future, do I want to get married/find a life partner someday?
Have children? If so, what would I want to have accomplished or have in place before
marriage and/or starting a family?
Identify 2 things, small or large, that you can do to move towards your goals:
Be specific. (For example: attend school regularly, meet with a college counselor, job shadow, volunteer or intern,
get a part-time job, look into apprenticeships, stay away from drinking/drugs, stay involved in things I like—
sports, music, JROTC, dance, art, etc. )
Are there things you are doing now that might get in the way of you reaching your
dreams? (For example: procrastinating, skipping school, not doing homework, smoking weed or drinking,
unprotected sex—risking pregnancy, poor relationship choices, hanging with the wrong people, etc.)
