Showcasing Your Skills Lesson  This activity is designed to help your child look at all the skills they have gained from participating in 4-H, Scouts, sports teams, student council, etc. and write them down at workforce skills. By recalling the activities they have participated in and then realizing what skills they have gained from those activities can help youth write down these skills and use them in a resume or college application. This activity may also help them discover what types of careers they may be interested in based on the skills they enjoy using.

KnowHow2Go -This great site that offers step-by-step guidance in college planning  and financial aid from a child’s middle school days until they step foot on a college campus. If you’re a parent, guardian, teacher, mentor or other caring adult, chances are there’s a teen in your life who wants to go to college, and this site can help your teen succeed.
