Who Am I and How Does This Impact Where I Am Going?
Learners use self-assessment activities to explore their future career choices, including the nonprofit sector. Students explore the for-profit and nonprofit career sectors and find out how being personally involved in philanthropic ventures benefits them, their communities, the economy, and the world.
Students will analyze how character is formed; identify their natural personality style strengths and challenges; give examples of how the government, nonprofit and for profit sectors of the economy work together in a mixed economy, and match career opportunities to personality styles and interests.
Students will identify jobs according to their sector of the economy and describe four important character traits, including the role they play in our communication styles.
Learners will describe the work of nonprofits and research their role in the local community. They will research which local nonprofits welcome the work of volunteers and provide a data base for other students who are looking for community service opportunities.
