Career Exploration/Personal Finance

Career Exploration/Personal Finance class, 1 semester class. Grades 7-12

Through a career exploration workbook, kids learn about themselves, their personality, matching it to potential careers, researching occupations to find a good fit, seeing the importance of high school classes for their future, practice interviews, finding possible job and/or college major interests and then working with their parents to create a plan to reach their goals. The Personal Finance part will be going over financial responsibility in a fun and engaging way, seeing who makes the most money in a virtual game of life using their decisions. Things we will go over include: budgets, banking, checking account, investing, debt, credit scores, mortgages, insurance, taxes, credit cards, entrepreneurship, LinkedIn and goal setting.
