The focus of this Capstone project is on career exploration for At-Risk youth. This topic is important because too often disadvantage students do not receive career development. These students are simply encouraged to complete high school with little to no direction regarding what to do after high school and their futures. While implementing prevention programs to decrease dropout rates is important, it is also essential to educate students about vocational and careers that will prepare them for life after high school. To accomplish this, a 3-day lesson was delivered to a credit recovery class at Greenfield High School in Greenfield, California that promoted career awareness and encourage occupational exploration.
