Workforce Preparation

What type of work would you like to do when you grow up?  4-H gives you opportunities to explore a variety of interests through projects and by shadowing adults at work.  Learn what type of education past high school is required for specific careers and how to start your own business.  If you like expensive things, then you’ll need to choose a career where people expect to make enough money to support that lifestyle.  There is a strong connection between the career you chose, the education required, the average salary for that career and the possible lifestyle the salary will support.  Start learning the skills now that will make you a good worker.  Good employees help build great communities in which to live.
