It's Never Too Early To Think About The Future!

High school students often come to mind when we think about "college and career exploration" ---- but it's never too soon to start! Elementary schools can be part of DiscoverU too. Use our "What Jobs Do You See Every Day?" poster and coloring activity as tools for discussion. This activity helps build awareness about different jobs in the community. Check out more  resources, including fun activities, lesson plans, and booklists for K-5 kids!
