College and Career Preparation
Start by knowing what you need to study:

What type of institution offers that qualification? (technical school, two year, four year?)
Career/Interest Inventory
What's the difference?
Job vs. Career?
Take a minute and imagine your future...
Look at your list of talents and interests...

Many of those talents require traits that can be useful in a future career. Make a list of careers that you believe use those traits on your worksheet.
How can you decide which career path to take?
Let's see what an inventory has to say about our interests/abilities, and possible career choices.
Do I need to go to college?
Find schools with programs you're interested in
Consider your budget - including housing and living costs
Apply to multiple schools
Apply for scholarships and other financial aid

How could these skills and talents benefit you in your future career?

Is it easy to prepare for college and a career?

What's the difference between the way Savannah, Elvia, and Omar will have to prepare and manage college or a career?

What barriers to do you face? How can you change those into motivations to go to school?
A few questions...
There are some basic qualifications you have to meet in order to attend most educational institutions
Getting Accepted to a School
Grades, SAT/ACT scores,
after-school activities, community service, etc.
It's helpful to know what types of grades and activities schools look for in their applicants.

This will help you prepare, so you can ensure acceptance into your chosen school.

Most trade schools and many community colleges do not have as rigorous entrance requirements, which make them great options for students who started preparing for college late.

Students can start there and then transfer to a different institution, or continue successfully in a trade school or community college. All types of
higher learning are important.
What do college goals have to do with early pregnancy or STD prevention?
Talking Circle: What have you learned?
What new goals will you make?
Making a decision now to behave in a certain way can help you prevent making dangerous or unhealthy decisions.
Brought to you by the ¡Adelante! program at Centro Hispano, supported in part by the Personal Responsibility Education Program from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration on Children, Youth, and Families.
Almost all careers require some type of school or training after high school
Don't worry if you don't like what career choices you're given, it's up to you, and you only, what path you decide to follow.
How could having a baby as a teenager maybe interfere with college or career goals later in life? What affect might that have on the child?
Check for Deadlines
Many schools have a deadline for applications.
Make sure you know when you need to have your application in and make a schedule based off of that... This will help you stay on task with your application.
If you can't reach a deadline, you will have to apply for the next semester or year.
