Building toward the future, YouthQuest students are learning about the different opportunities they will have when they grow up. With activities that follow the theme of “When I Grow Up,” students will learn math, language arts, science and social studies while exploring career opportunities and discovering what their future path might be.
“The question we are asking this month is, ‘How can we prepare the future generations for adulthood,’” says Cheryl Adkins, program director for YouthQuest. “We want to challenge students to think about the future with activities such as creating an autobiography where the students predict their own future.”
