Future Planning

Developing Interests

It’s never too early to expose your student/s to different kinds of experiences and activities in order to help them form ideas about what they might like to do in the future. Help them find their passion by exposing them to different involvements, whether through the schools or within the community. This should not be stressful and overwhelming. Test the waters with small commitments and see what sticks for them. Keep talking to your student/s and listen to what they enjoy. Find ways to connect them to learning more about their interests.
