What are Michigan's career pathways and how do they relate to my academic and personal development?
Your career is your personal expression of your talent to the world. A good decision as you move toward careers can make your life richer, more meaningful and purposeful. We want you to live a great life and be inspired every day to make the world a better place. Success in post secondary training takes planning and goal setting. We work with you throughout your 6th-12th grade year to make this process as smooth as possible. Don't be fooled into thinking people are lucky and that is why they are successful. You need to set goals and work hard to make them happen. Throughout your planning and process there will be obstacles and setbacks. During those times you must remember what you are working for and work even harder to accomplish your very worthy goals.
We are here to help. Just ask.
