Currently we ask kids to answer the question, "what do you want to be when you grow up?" but we have very few tools available to help them actually give an educated answer. I have developed a 3 step program that actually allows kids to assess their own personality and interests and apply that knowledge to 100 different real world careers via 1-2 page stories about the real people doing those jobs. Step 1: Evaluation - Figure out each child's "career personality" Step 2: Exposure - Learn about 100 different career paths over the course of 8 modules: Writers, Performers, Designers, Service (2), Business, Discovery and Product Developers. Each Module includes a self exploration exercise, story based questions, activity and further exploration worksheet. Step 3: Execution- Inspire them to find activities and role models that fit this personality. This includes a easy to customize letter home to parents that explains the work that was done, learnings about their child and list of ideas for them to do at home. Also includes a final project where kids present out their career of choice.
