Help spark a youth’s interests
Career coaching does not always happen in a straight line or step-by-step process. We are describing it that way to make it easier for you to see how to work together with youth.
The first step is to help a youth discover who they are, what they are good at and what interests them. Sometimes they already have a good understanding and need to gain more experience. Other youth may be still figuring it out and that is okay! As a career coach you can help spark a youth’s interests by encouraging them to try new things and dig for answers to questions themselves.
