Protecting self worth by avoiding failure In adolescence peers often become more important than family.

Many important relationships are formed in schools.

Peer relationships can have a positive or negative effect on school performance. Studies show that peer culture, not just friendships have an effect.

Schools with high levels of hostile interactions have less engaged students.

Schools with positive social climate have more positive school attitudes.

Social norms have an effect Ex: WWSHS Bullying Discussion?!? GPA of Classmates predicted individual GPA.
GPA of friends had no relationship.

In a article titled Careers Aspirations in the Teen Years Matter, the author interviewed 25 fifty-year-old individuals and evaluated how their career goals at age 16 matched up with their eventual career paths and what influence the outcomes had on their well-being. Nearly all of the participants had achieved their desired careers at some point in their lives.

The participants who achieved their desired career goals felt a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment with life, regardless of the salary they earned. Currently 75% of the participants are working in the exact job that they had sought. Realistic and Unrealistic Career Aspirations How to Better Inform Adolescents of Career Choices Informing Adolescents
of Career Choices
One-third of the participants reported having attained the exact position that they had aspired to at age 16, whether it be clerical, manual, or professional.

Studies have revealed that stronger aspirations and higher levels of determination at 16 were more likely to result in goal achievement than weaker and lower career aspirations. Ashby believes these findings can help shape the way in which career counselors, therapists, and other professionals look at employees and their related mental health and socioeconomic concerns.

Teenagers career aspirations do not match the demands in the job market, a report done by the Education and Employer Taskforce examined the ambitions of young people aged 13 to 18 and mapped them against projections for skills demands.

Between the ages of 13-14 the most popular career choice is becoming an actor, which falls out of the top ten by the time teenagers reach 17-18 years old.
www.careers.guardian.co.uk Who better to inform a teenager of their career choices, other than their parents and peers, parents and peers are strong influences on adolescents career choices.

Parents can potentially influence adolescents occupational choices through the way they present information about occupations and values, as well as through the experiences they provide. Parents can communicate to their children and adolescents that they value the importance of going to college and achieving a professional degree as a mean in attaining a career.

Peers also can influence adolescents career development , adolescents often choose peers from within the school setting at an achievement level similar to their own. When adolescents have friends and parents with high career standards, they are more likely to seek higher-status careers, even if they came from low-income families.

Cited from John W. Santrock, Adolescence Schools, teachers, and counselors can exert a powerful influence on adolescents career development.
Having classes and teachers who engage students in the opportunity to learn and gain knowledge on career choices and future preparations are exactly what adolescents need. To find jobs
adolescents must first be aware of their resources!!! What are career resources? Can You Think Of Any Career Resources Adolescents Can Use? Career Resources
Resources that can be used to explore awareness, both in terms of personal awareness and awareness of career options and their pros and cons so that the consequences of career decisions can be realistically appraised.

Community Libraries What are some ways educators can stress the importance of career planning and ignite a passion for their students' future? Sometimes teens lack the motivation to do career research or find career resources. Maybe sometimes all they need is a good talking and some comedy to put ideas in perspective. Stop @ 3:10 Lynch Lerner & Leventhal Why High school Counselors? According to the american school counselor association, "Today’s young people are living in an exciting time, with an increasingly diverse and mobile society, new technologies, and expanding opportunities. To help ensure that they are prepared to become the next generation of parents, workers, leaders, and citizen”, every student needs support, guidance, and opportunities during adolescence, a time of rapid growth and change.
