Learn how to implement this new National 4-H curriculum focusing on career exploration and workforce preparation in your club, school or community group. The “Build Your Future” curriculum helps teens investigate career interests, identify goals, develop employability skills and explore post-secondary education options and sources of funding. Nine engaging chapters provide a fun structure to help teens learn about their choices, make important connections and plan successful, meaningful careers.
Those attending the training will receive much more than a curriculum overview and online resources. Participants will experience first-hand a variety of learning methods such as networking, competing in a quiz bowl, operating a simulated business, conducting an informational interview, analyzing case studies, and much more. At the completion of the training, attendees will have what they need to start using the curriculum immediately.
MSU Extension is pleased to offer this professional development opportunity to assist youth development staff, teachers, volunteers, and community members interested and committed to providing quality career development programming across the state.
Thanks to a 4-H Participation Fee Grant, this $30 training will include:
In return we only ask participants to using at least one lesson from the curriculum in the next year and complete an evaluation.
