Description to Student at Beginning of the Project: You are now either 17 or 18 years old. What will your life be like 6-7 years? Many of the actions and decisions that you make now will affect your future, so why not think about them now? Below are 3 areas that will affect your life when you are 24 or as you approach that age will have an impact on your life. Your job is to research these areas to find possible solutions. Use any and all means to find this information including parents, employers, older brothers and sisters, social agencies, teachers, resources in any library, or ANY other resources you can possibly think of to help you collect the information that you need. You will have to work hard to find people who know the information you are supposed to find. You may be calling relatives, family friends, or friends of friends. You may have to call social agencies or look online to find answers. Bottom line - YOU MUST ANSWER EVERY QUESTION and give a source for EVERY bit of information that you give. The questions that are in italics are somewhat personal and are optional.
