Learn how to implement this National 4-H curriculum that focuses on career exploration and workforce preparation. This National 4-H curriculum written by Michigan State University Extension Educators helps teens investigate career interests, identify goals, develop employability skills and explore post-secondary education options and sources of funding. From exploring potential jobs to starting businesses, participants experience a variety of learning methods, such as developing a business plan, competing in a quiz bowl, creating a portfolio, analyzing case studies and discussing questions that reflect on their experiences. Nine engaging activities provide a fun structure to help teens learn about their choices, make important connections and plan successful, meaningful careers. The curriculum is perfect for clubs, community groups, school enrichment, afterschool, and camp settings targeting upper middle and high school students. The training is conducted by two of the authors.
