Multiple Future Paths: Expanding Youth Awareness

Future planning for many young people centers on guesswork and very little understanding of their own skills and possible paths. By coupling a wider net of professional relationships with more expansive and digital opportunities for career exploration, youths are more likely to choose a path that better aligns with what they like, what they are good at, and what the world needs. Join panelists as they discuss creating equitable access to mentors, career exploration, and educational pathways.
