Introduction

Career Choices is a competency-based career and life planning curriculum. It delivers life skills and employability skills, meeting requirements determined by the Department of Labor. Career Choices is also designed to help young people answer three very important developmental questions: Who am I? What do I want? How do I get it?

The curriculum is based on the proven concept that young people make better choices when they first explore who they are and what they want to do with their lives. When young people, particularly economically disadvantaged youth, have a positive vision of their future, they are more inclined to set and achieve life goals and become more focused, motivated learners.

Once young people's lives have direction, their self-confidence and self-esteem improve. This makes it easier for them to solve problems and overcome obstacles. Once they feel control over their lives, they are also inclined to stay in school, avoid drugs and postpone parenting. With a career plan and life skills, young people are empowered to take charge of their future.
