Career Awareness for College Planning – Training Kit

This kit was developed from out of sessions IDRA has led through our Texas Education CAFE Network work, funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. Family groups had expressed concern that students seemed to only have two or three ideas of possible college degrees and possible careers. This session helps students and families learn about different professions that are available to youths especially for who are attending college for the first time.
